Athough Coffee grain was first used to make a hot beverage in Abisinia, Ethiopia in 575 AD, it wasn't until the year 1825 that a young and industrious Nicaraguan student named Manuel Matus Torrez, got a few coffee beans from a friend in neighboring Costa Rica and planted them in his farm in Jinotepe, in the Pacific Region in Nicaragua.
By 1849, the american writer and explorer Mr. George E. Squier reports that coffee was regularly drunk in every Nicaraguan household. At least three times a day.
In the year 1912, our country was processing coffee beans with high quality standards to be able to export to Europe and the United States.
In the 1990's , Nicaraguan smaller size coffee growers started their transition and certification process with much success. Their initial motivation was to start a more sustainable economic activity as prices of conventional coffee tend to be very unstable year to year. However, little by little growers have found out that organic coffee is not only good for their family economy, but also to the protection of the environment that surrounds them.
All of our growers have less than 5 hectares of organic coffee planted, and as with all crops we export, these growers are part of our Orchestrated Agricultural Value Chain.
We have world class baristas working in association with our company, so can not only assure an organic product, but can also meet any cup quality requirements you might have.
