Finca Jenifer is located in vereda El Aguacatal, the highest region in Chalatenango, which gives it a perfect and unique profile to coffees. Isai’s family has an inherate coffee tradition, which made this isolated location, him inherate the farm and passion. When he received the farm, he changed the farm name to Jenifer,honoring his daughter. The farm is located very far away from the municipality. It takes a 45-minute walk from the main street to the farm. This isolated location, impeded Isaías from noticing the potential and the quality of his coffee.
More than two years ago, Isai sold his coffee as conventional, receiving very low prices, which changed when he started working on his quality and techniques with Caravela. For the future, Isai wants to investigate and learn more about fertilization and post harvest processes in order to achieve consistency in all the coffees that he gets out of his farm.
