Benjamin's family have always worked with coffee; his grandfather was a coffee producer and his father started a coffee trading company 40 years ago (Beneficio San Vicente).
So, he has worked in the Beneficio San Vicente since his childhood, doing everything, de-pulping, drying, and storing coffee for example, and after finishing university, he started to work with the specialty coffee program.
In 2013, after visiting El Cedral for 6 years of connecting coffee producers with specialty coffee buyers, he found a beautiful property that was bought immediately and the next year started to plant with Paca’s coffee (La Orquidea farm).
In the beginning, work on the farm was difficult because the access road was very bad and the costs were very high; but in 2016, he started to prepare the first micro-lots of specialty coffee, which encouraged him a lot to keep working.
Benjamin won first place in the 2022 Honduran Cup of Excellence with a phenomenal washed Geisha from his other farm, La Salsa. This award made Benjamin really happy and satisfied with the effort he has made over the years, but with the desire to continue working hard to improve the quality of all his coffees.
