Nicaragua Natural Las Hermanas
Las Hermanas have selected two women with a knack for quality and used a raised bed drying method for a natural process coffee technique. Although very limited in volume, the flavor and taste is big. We roast towards a darker finish which deepens the body, caramelizes the sugars and bring the plum, apricot fruit flavors into a baked custard tart nuance.
Las Hermanas, Organic and Fair Trade certified of 87 women growers. We have embraced the relationship each year since the early arrivals with growth each year.
Over the years we have invested some of the proceeds back into their community efforts including, water treatment, cervical cancer screening, school supplies, art supplies, musical instruments, farm equipment, food security programs, Roya agricultural training and prevention, crop yield, infrastructure for a produce market and a small cocoa factory to teach chocolate making and ultimately produce chocolate bars for sale and generate an alternative income stream.
We love this coffee and the women that make it happen. The efforts for Triple certifications are a bonus.
