How did you become a coffee farmer?

From farming in El Salvador through the Central American Coffee Belt, Jose and Berta journeyed to the Big Island of Hawaii in pursuit of the American dream. Despite their love for their homeland, they faced challenges due to the Salvadoran civil war. Seeking

solace in California, they started a family, but it wasn't the dreamland Jose had hoped for. In 1993, they took a leap of faith and moved to the underdeveloped yet promising Big Island of Hawaii, which Jose saw as a place to raise their family, referring to it as "the land of flowing milk and honey". The island provided ample opportunities for selective agriculture. Over the years, they toiled from one farm to another, overcoming obstacles with unwavering faith in God and each other. In 2006, an opportunity arose in coffee country, Ka’u, to lease cultivated coffee lands, leading to the establishment of Miranda’s Farms. Evolving from traditional to commercial farming, they maintained authenticity, crafting a farming legacy.

Miranda Farms has grown over the past 16 years, evolving into a café nestled amidst scenic coffee fields. It provides a farm-to-table experience, featuring a range of distinctive coffee varieties like Typica, Yellow Caturra, Red Catuai, Geisha, and more for

visitors to sample. The family-run business is led by Berta and Jose, with their eldest daughter Maria as a co-owner, collaborating with her siblings Ana, Carlos, and Gabriel.
