Raised on family estates, from the age of six you had your obligations. Already adult has suffered in the inclement weather. In 1975 a frost devastated the crop and in 1978 it was the hail that zeroed the harvest. After that, Rivelini left the farm, but not the coffee. For 10 years he sold roasted coffee.
