STORY: Finca Los Planes rests on the shoulders of the Montana El Pital, part of the Reserva de Vida Silvestre El Pital shared with the western side of Honduras. The nearest city to Ramon’s coffees is La Palma, but he normally goes all the way to Nueva Ocotepeque, Honduras to obtain his fertilizer, gas and sometimes just to enjoy the fairs!
Ramon and Theodore’s friendship goes back to a fertilizer training in Ocotepeque in 2009. His farm, El Pital, is a gorgeous reserve area. Sometimes the temperature drops to -F.
Ramon just turned 36 and he has a whole life ahead of him, in his farm of 32 hectares, he has developed an amazing ecosystem where everything works very organic. If you want breakfast you got to go and harvest eggs in the morning. Horses, dairy and meat cattle, chicken and pork are grown there too so he lives in a little piece of heaven.
Ramon left El Salvador as a tipical Central American to pursue the American Dream. After 5 years, he decided to go back and built his farm his parents left him when he was 8 years old. He went back home, got married and started his real dream. Now with one boy named after him and his wife Sobeida, they run the farm and hire temporary workers during the harvest.
