This stunning coffee from Nicaragua is produced by the Proyecto UVA, which is a social and sustainable imitative supporting farmers.
This coffee is produced in the La Esmeralda region, which has the natural advantages of volcanic soil, an altitude of 1,200m and a micro climate. These elements are the ideal conditions to produce quality coffee.
Proyecto UVA's objective is to improve those natural advantages with technical, educational and environmental assistance to the local farming community, resulting in better yields and higher scoring coffees that fetch better prices for the farmers in the La Esmeralda coffee growing region of Jinotega.
Qualified agronomists provide knowledge and instruction on planting, nutrition, and overall farm management. The focus at harvest is on picking ripe, red cherries, and the introduction of raised drying beds enhances the natural drying process.
Environmental practices are geared towards soil conservation, wastewater treatment, protection of water sources and reduction in the use of agrochemicals. Social development activities include the establishment of a minimum wage structure, fair labour and occupational health & safety conditions.
