Our Nicaragua SHG EP is a coffee that comes from the mountainous northwest region of Nicaragua. It is a Strictly High Grown coffee, meaning that the coffee was grown at high altitudes, which allows the bean to develop slower, resulting in a denser high quality bean. In addition, EP stands for European Preparation – a further sorting of the green coffee before it is exported, so only the finest green beans are bagged and exported. A great deal of our Nicaraguan coffee is harvested and exported from Asociacion Aldea Global.
Aldea Global began in 1992 with 22 farmers. Today, the Association assists over 1000 families, most of which are Chorotega Indigenous Communities. Aldea Global offers organic specialty coffees, which have provided the association with small farm loans, women’s solidarity groups and the ability to produce other agriculture products such as fresh produce and beans. The association promotes sustainable management of natural resources, rural health clinics, installation of potable water filters and integrated pest management programs. The Association of small farmers facilitates the growth of profitable and sustainable businesses, promoting efficient commercialization and alternative credit services. Aldea Global helps farmers stay in harmony with their environment, while producing a profitable product for the marketplace.
