Luis Fernando Rubio’s mother Rosa Ines Rubio, purchased finca El Jardin in 1986. As a struggling single mother, she purchased the farm in hopes to provide for her son and his future. These circumstances have lit a flame inside Luis that will never burn out. He is motivated to succeed and is always innovating to improve his craft. Luis has completely vertically integrated from farm to cup on his 6 manzanas of land. He has managed to produce amazing Catuai and Caturra, anaerobically ferment and process on his wetmill, dry on his raised African beds he built, mill in his bodega, roast on his 50lbs coffee roaster he made from scratch with 2 of his friends (mind blown), cup in his lab and sell to the Nicaraguan market under his brand 'Don Luis', named afer his grandfather. We couldn’t be happier and more excited about our alliance and the future of our relationship.
