Sabino and his wife Maria Jesus live in a small village of farmers who produce both coffee and vegetables at the highest altitudes of Jinotega.
When you visit their farm you may still see Sabino using two oxen to pull a cart or to plow a field before planting. They have five children named Edis, Sabino Vladimir, Kenia, Belccis, and Cristian.
They have abundant raised beds for both drying coffee and selecting out imperfections.
Our import partners, Gold Mountain Coffee Growers, worked with Sabino's father, Don Jose, before he passed away, and Don Sabino hopes to continue his father’s coffee farming legacy.
The attention he pays to the many details involved with coffee production bodes well for their ability to consistently produce high-scoring microlots. They aspire to plant more coffee and to
implement new and more efficient techniques. They say that these improvements will allow them to hire more workers and make renovations on their farm, which has excellent altitude and climatological conditions for coffee production.
