We are pleased to introduce

his family to improve the farm and produce top-quality coffees. This lot

in the Nueva Segovia region, in the north of the country. This growing
region produces some of the sweetest and most delicate coffees in Nicaragua.

WHAT IS THE CUP OF EXCELLENCE?
of Excellence® is a prestigious international
program that gives its award (The Cup of Excellence® Award) to
the best coffees produced in particular countries each year.
The coffees are submitted by the farmers, cupped and rated by
a panel of national and international judges. The winning coffees
are sold to the highest bidders in an online auction. The program
is an effective way to reward the hard work and quality of smaller
farmers, who would otherwise not get recognized.
