Mario Esquivel

Born in 1920, Don Juan Bautista Esquivel Reyes, who was raised in León, Nicaragua, worked as the administrator of a coffee estate located in Datanlí, Jinotega. After spending a few years as an administrator, Don Juan Bautista bought a parcel of land nearby his workplace. The land was later inherited to his 3 sons and 2 daughters. His son, Don Filadelfo Francisco Esquivel Rivera began planting coffee in 1961 on his 6 manzanas lot, named after the neighborhood in which his grandfather grew up in León, Saragoza. In 1994, Mario César Esquivel bought 2 manzanas from his father Filadelfo and through hard work and dedication, he continues his great grandfather’s legacy.
