Coffee begins with the people who cultivate and harvest it! The El Porvenir Cooperative is nestled on the side of a verdant, biologically diverse, mountain outside of León, Nicaragua. The community of some three hundred people collectively owns the land on which they farm and live.

The beautiful setting belies the hardships that the farmers continue to face: vital infrastructure for providing easy access to potable water, electricity, the internet, and transportation are inadequate. The community owns a single vehicle —an old tractor— that not only brings members of the community up the mountain, but also is sometimes used to carry coffee beans and other farm products down the mountain. El Porvenir includes families who fought on opposing sides during the 1979 Revolution, but who came together to form ecologically sustainable livelihoods.

By growing organic coffee, the farmers earn higher prices and protect themselves, their neighbors, and the surrounding environment from hazardous agrochemicals while promoting biodiversity.  Beyond the farm, our importer works to ensure that the El Porvenir farmers can gain access to vital infrastructure.
