Santa Maria de Lourdes Estate, Ocotal Octavio Jose Peralta Octavio Jose Peralta Paguaga, a veterinarian, is more like an orchestra man, because besides of owning a sausage factory, a pig farm and a horse school, his passion is the coffee world and its business. I love coffee and that is why I left my veterinarian clinic to give myself entirely to the excellence that being a cup winner demands I am surrounded by two great collaborators Don Arnoldo y Chepe, who looks after my coffee plantations since 16 years ago. He tells us this while he caresses his female dog Saskia. Octavio does not hide his liking for business and he is planning to be part of the tourist route of coffee an idea that for him is amazing. He believes that being part of this route will bring good incomes to those entrepreneurs that are interested in the adventure tourism. I have a beautiful view in my farm and some furrows that I am fixing to see again! He shows us a sign that says: Feeding bird area. That is how he calls the area where future tourists will be able to throw pictures to exotic birds and the flora. To offer a great quality coffee and to be able to drink it at the coffee plantations, is something that Europeans really appreciate that is why my priority is to keep high standards of quality in my farm is not far from now that Santa Maria de Lourdes Estate becomes a little mountain hotel I am working on that After this conversation, Octavio and his mandador (the person in charge of the farm) talk about the great location and climate of the farm and the future of the next crop.
