El Cielito (Little Heaven) is a beautiful mountain in Sta Barbara. From there Lake Yojoa looks like a marvelous painting.
Job, as everybody calls him is a young coffee producer who started growing after years of working in the USA. His wife, Fanny Moreno bought the land about 10 years ago and when they were able to grow enough coffee to maintain his family, he returned to Honduras .
Since that time he has been replanting the coffee trees and planting other species like cedros and mahogany. Job is in charge of the production, fertilization and everything on the farm. Fanny takes care of the wet mill, she receives the coffee and pays the pickers. After being washed under Fanny’s supervision, Job takes the coffee to his house and Fanny cares of it until the end.
As we can read these two (a lovely couple by the way) make a successful and beautiful team, and their hard work earned them 15th place in the 2015 COE auction.
