We were able to have this coffee due to the efforts of our friends at Gold Mountain Coffee Growers. They are a social enterprise that, in addition to its own farm (Finca Idealista), works directly with coffee producers in Nicaragua, including Jose Maria and Maria Concepcion, to connect them with roasters abroad. GMCG is on the ground, all the time, teaming up with producers willing to take the steps necessary (and whose altitude and soil conditions allow them) to produce high-cupping specialty coffee. They literally stand on every partner farm during picking to ensure ripeness with refractometers and ripeness bracelets. GMCG also carries out sustainable development projects in communities, such as free computing classes for girls from coffee communities, medical assistance, microcredit, running water in schools, and educational supplies.
We couldn't be happier to be working with GMCG for the forth consecutive year and look forward to an amazing future in coffee together.
