Los Milagros Estate, Jinotega Julio Cesar Real Don Julio Cesar Real, a peasant with deep roots, invites us to go down the narrow pass of the mountain where a colorful coffee mill and pulp processor rises. Modest and a hard worker, Don Julio feels comfortable with the personal attention that he gives to his coffee plantation. This dedication has allowed him to raise his quality level regarding the management of this crop. I tried three times to participate in the cup of excellence… but I never was able to classify… but with the help of Soppexcca RL (a cooperative in Jinotega) they knew how to select a good coffee lot… and you see… I made it! says Don Julio with a happy face. The pulp processor is a rustic machine (manual) since there is no energy in this part of the country. Don Julio shows us how he processes the three type of coffee that he grows in two coffe plantations La Terraza y La Curva. The types of the coffee are: Catuai, Bourbón y Caturra. Don Julio, a humble producer lives with his wife and daughter… I am planning to work hard to improve our life standard. Besides working in my farm Los Milagros if the prices improve I want to buy some more land and teach my daughter the coffee business he ends saying.
