As fourth and fifth generation coffee producers, Ariel Teran and his children do their work with passion and pride. For them, coffee production is both a way of life and a path to preserve the environment while giving back to their community.
Their farm, known as La Concepcion, is perched on the slopes of the Casitas Volcano and combines family tradition with innovative practices. Over the years, the farm and surrounding community has experienced countless hardships, including the catastrophic Hurricane Mitch of 1998. The Teran family’s resilience and ability to adapt is undoubtedly a large part of their success.
