La Pijuda is a small farm in the Sursular region, not far from Tegucigalpa. Rafael had a dream of creating a coffee farm, and he purchased the land.
He originally worked in lowland corn and sweet potato farming, but one day he heard about the Panama Geisha variety and decided to try cultivating it, so he asked his sister, who lives in Panama, to get some Geisha seeds from the Boquete region.
They started planting seedlings in 2014, and the first harvest was in 2017. A sample was sent to Ronnie, an exporter. Fermentation took 24 hours, and drying took 15 days, allowing the coffee to be slowly refined to bring out the delicate flavors unique to Geisha.
