These beans come to us from a coffee coop made up of 2300 small-scale farmers in the Segovia mountains of northwestern Nicaragua. PRODECOOP has spent the last several years identifying and marketing the best beans from the region's shade grown coffee farms in order to improve the economic status of the farming families. The coop families are proud to offer these excellent, high quality coffees as an example of their hard work and dedication.
Over 2300 small-scale farmers have joined
together to create the Central Multiple Service Cooperative, better
known as PRODECOOP. The farms are located in the Segovia mountains of
.northwestern Nicaragua, an area that includes the departments of
Madriz, Nueva Segovia, and Esteli. The coffees produced in these areas
are cultivated under shade trees, and the beans are manually harvested.
The initial coffee processing takes place on the individual farms. Sun
drying and final processing takes place at the coopâ€™s dry mill, Las
Segovias, located in the town of Palacaguina. PRODECOOP carefully
supervises all phases of the coffee production and processing in order
to ensure strict quality control. The coop has spent the last few years
identifying and marketing the coopâ€™s best coffees in order to improve
the economic status of all the farmers. The coop families are proud to
offer these excellent, high quality coffees as an example of their hard work and dedication.
