I bought this farm in 1990 and I improved it by cultivating more coffee. This farm has 10mz with coffee, mainly caturra variety and only 2 mz with Bourbón. The total production is 150 QQ. We produce also musacia, citrus fruits, chayas, malangas, etc.
About his family:
I have a wife and four children.
What is the secret of your success?
Everything is in the Gods hands. I think that he was the one who illuminated us to do the job in the best way. At the same time the microclimate that God gave us is really important for the production of high quality coffee, plus the small effort that we put to produce our coffee together with the care of the mill Las Segovias.
How do you feel being a winner of the Cup of Excellence Nicaragua 2010?
I feel really happy since now we have the hope to improve our coffee production units and be ready for the difficult time, improve the wet mill and our family conditions.
His experience in the Cup of Excellence:
The Cup of Excellence is a big and great competition that helps improving the life of many families since we all have the opportunity to compete and offer the high quality coffee. The Cup of Excellence is am steam engine for the small producers since we can only compete with a quality not with the quantity.
