Our farms are internationally acknowledged as exemplary models of sustainability and quality. They are certified by universally respected organizations and private companies that purchase our coffees.
Our coffee farms in Nicaragua are living proof that quality, productivity, investment in people and environmental conservation are essential for creating sustainable agriculture – both economically and environmentally.
