Donald Efrain Roque is the third generation of coffee producers in the Roque Family. Both his grandfather and father were dedicated to coffee, and he decided to continue with this beautiful legacy. For his entire life, he has worked with coffee and over this time he has acquired a very special affection and passion for it. In 2006, Donald Efrain found out about Cup of Excellence in Nicaragua and he decided to participate in this contest to see how much potential his coffee had. After performing well in the competition, he became more motivated that ever to continue improving the quality of his coffee and participated again in COE in 2009 and 2011, where he achieved great results. For him, the biggest change from being a conventional farmer to a specialty coffee farmer, was having to train and educate his team to change their harvesting and processing practices. Donald's coffee has to be tried.
