ABOUT THE COMMUNITY
The community of “Nueva Esperanza” which means “New Hope” is located in an extremely remote region with limited to no access. It wasn’t until two years ago that it gained recognition with the coffee quality and volume that enabled some development. Now dirt roads have opened up to facilitate accessibility.
ABOUT THE PRODUCER AND FAMILY
Don Jose Luis Rodriguez is relatively new to the region, he moved to Nueva Esperanza two years ago when he purchased a coffee farm in hopes of improving the livelihood for his family. He is a new to coffee but has become somewhat of a role model in the area.
