Arturo Domingo Gomez was born and raised on Hacienda Joya Grande, where his father worked the farm. When his father passed away, Don Domingo inherited a portion of the land and, with a lot of effort, planted coffee across the entirety of it. Today, coffee is his main economic activity, and it enables him to support his wife and eight children. Don Domingo is very well organized and understands the importance of certain practices in the coffee fields. Fertilization is regularly performed on the farm, and he also manages the shade cover and pruning programs. This lot is named after a local natural wonder. El Boquerón, or, The Big Mouth, is a narrow canyon cut through by the Rio Dulce. Its limestone walls are covered in beautiful hanging moss, and the canyon is home to blue morpho butterflies, hummingbirds and howler monkeys.
