Juan Carlos and his wife Aracely live in a small village of farmers who produce both coffee and vegetables at the highest altitudes of Jinotega. His father passed away after meeting Juan Carlos’ baby daughter (Carla) and giving Juan Carlos more land on which to grow coffee. They are keeping up his father’s tradition by producing excellent microlots.

When you visit their farm, you can hear and may be lucky enough to spot a howler monkey, and you can see tropical birds in the shade trees that shelter their coffee from too much sun. Juan Carlos’ coffee meets the tests of highlycritical cuppers from across the world, and we can see by his dedication and attention to detail that he and Aracely will produce excellent specialty coffee for years to come.
