EL RECUERDO // NICARAGUA
This variant is currently sold out
El Recuerdo is one of the most beautiful and secluded farms we’ve ever visited. The journey here is long, steep and scary. Crumbling roads twisting and turning around sheer cliffs bring you to a secluded farm that is farmed by just one man, José Javier.
Last year, we bought just 2 bags of coffee from José, this year we bought 30. Increasing the quantity like this is good on so many levels. It’s shows quality, commitment, and trust. Above all else, it means José is guaranteed to sell a higher percentage of his crop at a premium price.
Soil, climate, altitude, and flora make this farm such a special place. The biodiversity is of the scale, with natural shade plants so thick and dense it’s often hard to see the coffee. José’s ambitions for the land and his families future are heartwarming and simple, it’s easy to get behind a man like this.
