Nicaragua is a Central American country known for its high-quality coffee produced in areas with fertile volcanic soils and diverse microclimates. After political unrest, civil war, and the destruction of coffee infrastructure due to Hurricane Mitch, the coffee industry was restored through cooperatives. The Nicaraguan Association of Smallholder Coffee Cooperatives (CAFENICA) was established to help producers regain their land and educate them on post-harvest processing methods. Coffee production supports 8% of the country's exports and nearly 45,000 families, with most of the producers being smallholders.
Moreover, 95% of coffee production is grown under a shade of native and exotic trees, which promotes biodiversity and soil health, and helps preserve the surrounding ecosystems. Finca Dora, owned by Daniel Nuñez, is a century-old coffee farm located in the Jinotega region. The farm uses agroforestry systems to promote biodiversity and creates jobs for locals. During the harvest, the coffee cherries are handpicked and transported to the wet mill before being moved to a dry mill to be hulled and prepared for export.

We do a consistent weekly roast to ensure we can provide you with the freshest coffee. In addition to that, we are committed to provide coffee that are within 14 days of the roast date.
All our coffee beans are roasted on the FROCO FR15-I. A machine that gives us a ton of information like the ability to track temperatures of the beans, drum, and airflow just to name a few. This means we obtain and are able to monitor with a lot of information to ensure we can roast coffee with a high level of consistency.
We pack our whole beans coffee and ground coffee in a 250g airtight packaging. With a smaller packaging, it'll help to keep the coffee fresh and it prevents exposing a large amount of coffee to the environment which can change the flavours of the coffee.
We don't use any flavourings in our products/coffee. What you see on the packaging and our website are taste notes, our ways of depicting nuances of flavours in the coffee beans. So don't worry if you don't get the taste notes, as every taste buds bring a slightly different outcome.
