This coffee is grown at high altitudes deep within the rainforest canopy in the mountains of Matagalpa, Nicaragua. Diego Chavarria is the owner of the family-owned coffee farm that was started by his great great grandfather and passed down through the generations. Diego's farm is approximately 300 hectares and produces around 160,000 pounds of green coffee annually.
Through Finca El Dorado, Diego employs over 300 workers during the harvest season, supports 40 churches (and growing) around the mountains of Matagalpa, and is heavily involved in community building activities. By purchasing a bag of Nicaragua Café Diego, you are investing in his mission and the youth in Matagalpa.
I have been a subscriber since their launch, having been introduced to Better Grounds at a coffee festival. I have enjoyed every monthly selection so far! Their service is a great choice for anyone who, like me, wants easier access great quality coffee and anyone who might feel overwhelmed trying to look into the sourcing bonafides of different brands. I appreciate that they do this work for their clients, and also support different roasters who are doing good work.
