She begins to learn all about the craft with the help of her godmother (Mercy Flores) and the owner of the coffee plantation (Boris Barraza), where she was newly hired. In the meantime, her younger brother, Alfredo Moreno (William Castillo), bursts out of control and ends up in jail.
Alfredo, looking for revenge for the brutal rape of his sister, manages to convince two hoodlums to rob and kill Don Gilberto (Fernando Gaviria), the perpetrator - however, their plans go horribly wrong. The owner of the plantation tries to help Josefina get her brother out of this desperate situation. Now, with hope on the horizon, Josefina leads the way to the top coffee tasting competitions in the country. However, destiny has other plans for Josefina’s hopes and dreams.
