Our origins return to the beginning of 1900, when Joseph Francis Martins (My dear GrandDaddy) Set up a prosperous coffee and oranges Farm to support his growing family in Martindale, Pomeroon, Guyana, South America, which provided not only Financial stability, but also long-term work for the surrounding community. Since then, our generations have always known the value of hard work, the determination and importance of delivering a good product to customers.

These farms also produced other marginal crops, such as grapefruit and land provisions. The coffee farm had two movable roof cabinets (as large as houses) on rails. After the coffee beans were peeled by a machine, they were placed in the open to dry. If the rain threatened, movable roof compartments were quickly pushed into position to cover the coffee beans. Dried coffee beans were produced for sale in the capital, Georgetown. Where we come from…
