2021 Nicaragua El Pozo - Direct Trade, SMBC Bird Friendly®, Volcanic*
The 2021 harvest is here. This is a direct trade relationship where we're buying directly from this women run social enterprise that is comprised of three farms - Concepción de María, El Nisperal and El Pozo - all in the Sierras de Managua and Meseta de los Pueblos (Carazo). Unfortunately given climate change and the associated extreme weather, the harvest is smaller this year and El Nisperal is no longer going to be farming coffee.
The mission of Mil Flores is forest conservation to preserve the primary source of drinking water in Managua, using agroforestry products including coffee, bananas and avocados to keep the farms economically sustainable.
El Pozo is certified volcanic*, Bird Friendly®, and officially designated as Private Wildlife Reserve.
This is a washed coffee from El Pozo and is the Parainema varietal, a naturally lower acid bean.
