Origin Trip: Nicaragua

Posted: January 30, 2015

In early February, our Coffee Quality Manager Nathan Hoida, Roaster Marco Carrera, and Videographer Kelly Anderson are departing for Nicaragua to visit the producers of Prodecoop. This cooperative group is located in the Segovia region and is the source of Colectivo’s  exclusive Nicargua Don Zeledon.

Nathan will be cupping to select coffees that will make up this year’s Don Zeledon and considering lots for Colectivo’s Featured Farm and Seasonal offerings. Numerous Featured Farm coffees have come out of Prodecoop – Renacer, 15 de September, Zacharias Padilla – all of which have been very delicious!

Nathan, Marco and Kelly also plan to visit another group, UCA San Juan del Rio Coco, which operates just north of Prodecoop. It’ll be interesting to compare cupping notes from two separate farming groups that rest in such close proximity. Look forward to some great footage and photos from Kelly. And some great coffee!
