Both Wil’s grandfather and father were coffee producers in Yoro, a region of Honduras, where he gained his early knowledge of coffee production.
In the 1990s, Wil relocated to San Nicolás, Santa Bárbara, where he met his wife. Together, they established a grocery store and acquired a 2-hectare farm.
In 1998, a friend of Wil’s presented him with a unique opportunity. He invited Wil to visit San José de Los Andes, also in Santa Barbara, to explore a potential farm exchange. Upon seeing the property, Wil was captivated and swiftly accepted the offer. This farm is now known as Finca El Paraiso.
Since that moment, Wil and his family have been leading a joyful life on the farm, dedicating every inch of it to coffee cultivation.
It wasn’t until 2015 that Wil discovered the full potential of his land, realizing it could produce exceptional specialty coffee. In that year, with the guidance of the San Vicente team, he prepared his first micro lot.
