Our farm Hacienda Pomarrosa was built by my father and I from scratch in 1992 where we planted 10,000 coffee trees, and a bed and breakfast. We have developed the farm as a agro-tourism destination where we grow the coffee from seed to cup, give coffee tours and rent houses to tourists.
On September 20th, 2017 we where hit hard with Hurricane Maria which devastated Puerto Rico as a Category 4 hurricane , taking with it 100% of our entire coffee harvest and every thing we worked so hard for. Our farm was completely stripped of all vegetation and it ripped the roof off from one of the houses we rent.
Our farm still has no power, water or communication. We are working so hard to clean up the devastating disaster left behind from Hurricane Maria, but it will take a long time. We need help in rebuilding our farm and re-planting 10,000 coffee trees from scratch.
Thank you so much for your generosity. This farm is our life, our passion and everything we have worked so hard for.
