The Story

This SHG EP Nicaraguan coffee is Fairtrade and Organically certified from Nicaragua. Cooperativa Agropecuaria Reyna del Café was established in 2002 but was not granted its incorporation until March 10 2009. This allowed them to seek direct market relations with their buyers, increase income for their members, and empower their organization. The coop's 165 members cultivate over 800 hectares of coffee. During the 2014/2015 harvest, Reyna del Café processed and exported all the coffee produced by its members through Peralta coffees obtaining competitive premiums for their quality.
