El Porvenir Estate, Las Manos Manuel Gonzalez Ponce El Porvernir Estate is located very close to the northern border of the country. It is here in this farm, where we find the very dynamic Don Manuel Gonzalez Ponce. He is all the time telling old stories regarding the extensive coffee areas which were found at the beginning of the XX century. He is a man with a great expertise when it comes to the handling of the golden grain, as coffee has been named since those years. His abilities are many not only with coffee but also with love when he met his wife, she was only 20 years old and he was celebrating his 62 birthday. Since 16 years ago, she has inspired him and giving him youth. She has become an inseparable partner. She helps Manuelito in preparing the food for the workers of the farm. During the coffee crop, the workers (all of them Nicaragua ns) add to a number of 30 peasants. These peasants come from all over Nueva Segovia. Despite his age, Manuel is very active in the furrows and he never gests sick says Francisca, while she cleans an amount of coffee which is ready to be roasted. I am always with my boots on says immediately Don Manuel, while he proudly shows the coffee plantation, which has giving him many satisfactions. His right hand is Omar, who is one of his grandchildren. He is in charge of los mozos a name given to the coffee workers. This small family of coffee producers is another sample of the coffee excellence and tradition of the northern part of the country.
