Description

Jose Luis Hernandez, owner of La Joya (a name that represents dreams, sacrifices and aspirations) was born in Canton El Aguacatal, La Palma Chalatenango in 1971 as son of a hard working farmer who started his own farm while working on another.

Jose Luis, with dreams and ambitions at the age of 17 emigrated to North America for 5 years. When he returned to invest in his own land he planted Pacas and Bourbon on his farm. Like many coffee growers he has faced obstacles of pests and diseases but mainly in marketing.


His family Virgen Dolores (wife) and his daughters, Katherine, Iris, Carla and Windy Areli, are part of the coffee process. It is a slow but very good to be controlled process that enhances the cup quality.  As any father with a big passion like Jose Luis' he wants his daughters to continue the love and passion for this crop, but at the same time he makes efforts for them to have a university degree.

In the cup you will find a medium bodied and very sweet coffee with hints of plum and almond. 

It is thanks to your taste for rare specialty coffee that these farmers can make a significant increase on their ordinary earnings, which enables them to develop their land further.

Enjoy!
