Ramona Diaz' farm is located in San Juan del Rio Coco. She both an excellent coffee farmer and the gender representative at her coop, which is part of PRODECOOP, a large coffee cooperative located in Esteli, Nicaragua. She has a 2.5 manzana (4.25 acre) coffee farm, Finca El Oasis (1250 masl), that she runs with her husband and 4 children. Ramona comes from a family who has worked and loved coffee for generations, and she is passing that love and experience to her husband, who had never worked in coffee before they met.
Ramona’s pride and joy is in the hard work that she has invested into her farm, and the quality of her coffee absolutely reflects that hard work. A significant portion of Ramona’s motivation comes from her family. As a third generation coffee farmer, she obviously sees coffee in her family’s future, and she also believes that the farm is “key to [her] children’s education.”
