Background Details:
is produced by Roberto Rene González and milled as a single farm micro-lot at
RAOS (Cooperativa Regional de Agricultores Orgánicos de la Sierra) where
Roberto is a member and the general manager. Roberto and his family own a
37-acre farm called Finca Liquidámbar located in the community of
Guascotoro within the municipality of San Jose in the department of La Paz,
Honduras. Roberto was one of the first in his community to earn a university
degree. After graduating with a degree in business management, Roberto
returned home to manage RAOS and to help his family run the coffee farm.
Roberto is currently working to get 19 acres of his farm formally recognized
as a biological reserve. The goal is for the reserve to become a destination for
tourism in the area. Finca Liquidámbar provides year-round employment to 7
people and another 30 people during the harvest. Roberto, his wife Odalma
and their two children partner with local schools and local organizations for
road improvements and youth activities.
