The green mountains and the beautiful rivers of Copan, Honduras, are what captivated Jose Armando Castejon in 1927. A hard working visionary man who found his land ideal to cultivate coffee. Starting with just a few acres, he cultivated and worked his land with the goal of producing the highest quality coffee. His success motivated hit further to pursue his passion to grow coffee with little means of communication or roads by which to transport his coffee. He persevered using horses and mules to deliver his product to the market. Later he began exporting his product to the Unites States and Europe.

His son, Rodolfo Castejon Aldana, an agronomist from the Zamorano Panamerican School, and his wife Maria Teresa shared the passion demonstrated by Jose Armando Castejon. Their joint effort and expertise in coffee, production and the modernization their plant and equipment continued to improve. In 1967, they build the first gravel road, which facilitated the distribution of their coffee and significantly contributed to the progress of the region.

In the year 2000, Maria Teresa de Castejon and her daughters undertook and completed the development of one of the most modern and environmentally compatible plants in Central America, with the single goal of producing an even better quality of coffee in perfect harmony with the environment.
