Background

Our Nicaragua single origin coffee grows in the Central northern mountains of the Madriz region. Coffee arrived in Nicaragua in the late 1700’s, finding perfect growing conditions in the cloud-covered volcanic mountains. By 1870, coffee was the main agricultural product of Nicaragua which lasted into the mid 20th century until the civil revolution forced many coffee farmers to abandon their farms. Trade sanctions, natural disasters, and loss of farms has further impacted the availability of getting coffee from Nicaragua. Despite these setbacks, coffee is making a comeback thanks to specialty coffee. Most farms in Nicaragua are microlot and small-scale operations, with 95% of the coffee shade grown. Coffee is mostly organic by default due to the high costs of chemicals and organic certification which farmers cannot afford. Click here to learn more about coffee history in Nicaragua.

We source our Nicaragua single origin coffee from Unión de Cooperativas Agropecuarias de San Juan del Río Coco. Founded in 1993, Agropecuarias operates on two fundamental pillars: top quality and sustainable farming practices. The commitment of these farmers to their product is evident in their consistently superior cup profiles. Agropecuarias consists of 8 cooperatives with a total of 370 smallholder farmer members. The hilly terrain of the San Juan del Rio Coco area creates a number of distinct mocroclimates, resulting in unique flavor profiles from each of the individual cooperatives. With notes of chocolate, nuts, and citrus, this low acidic coffee will brighten your day!
