Directions to Café Hacienda San Pedro
The mountain town of Jayuya in the Porta Caribe Region of Puerto Rico is the location for Café Hacienda San Pedro, a working coffee farm known for producing a seductively rich coffee. The high elevation and cooler climate develops a product that is velvety and smooth with a classic aroma. The taste is semi-sweet, reminding you of caramel, with a delicate chocolaty aftertaste and spicy overtones.
Hacienda San Pedro traces its roots back to the end of the 19th century when Emeterio Atienza first arrived in Puerto Rico from Spain. The young man quickly gained a reputation as a hard worker, eventually becoming a Foreman at one of the most prestigious coffee plantations in Puerto Rico. Eventually Emeterio was able to realize his dream and was able to purchase his own farm in Coabey a sector of Jayuya. With an intense dedication to his craft and extensive knowledge of how to produce exquisite coffee; Café Hacienda San Pedro was born.
Today Emeterio's grandson, Roberto Atienza maintains the tradition and passion that he inherited from his grandfather tending to a farm that produces the finest coffee in Puerto Rico.
Café Hacienda San Pedro conducts tours of the hacienda on Saturday's and Sunday's at a cost of $10 per person.
