Nestled deep within a lush, forest laden mountain rests the birthplace of our single origin high quality coffee. Our fully sustainable farm exists within an ideal climate that allows our plants to flourish and blossom beautiful, rich red cherries that we nourish throughout their entire production cycle all the way into your cup. There is no step in our coffee's lifecycle that we are not thoroughly in control of, only by doing so can we ensure our True Farm to Cup process. All of our coffee is grown at El Recreo Estate Farm, located in Jinotega, Nicaragua. The farm is currently managed by owner Miriam Morales' parents, Leana and Carlos.

The farm has been owned by the Ferrey-Machado family since 1972, but the land has grown coffee since 1905. Our natural approach to coffee production directly aligns with the standards detailed by the Rainforest Alliance, ensuring our coffee's consistent highest quality.
