From Nicaragua to Your Cup

Our Nicaragua SHG San Juan del Rio Coco is a Fairtrade Certified, full bodied coffee with a rich mouthfeel and an earthy aroma. It has a dark density that pairs particularly well with chocolate or beef.

About the growers:

UCA San Juan del Rio Coco is a union of 8 small farmer cooperatives in the Northern Nicaraguan highlands, at about 4,500 ft above sea level. All of their coffee is certified organic and shade-grown, below a canopy of intact, functioning forests that provide critical habitat for hundreds of migratory bird species. Small shade coffee farms have been increasingly destroyed to make way for sun-tolerant coffee with better yields and lower prices – it is estimated that over 40% of shade coffee farms in Latin America have been lost in the last decade! Supporting cooperatives like this one makes a difference!

This coffee comes from the women within the Co-Operative, who have organized under the Cafe Femenino┬« program – which means they get an additional premium for their coffee and funding for projects to improve their whole region! Learn more at
