Nicaraguan, Los Robles, Matagalpa
This is Zelie Beans Coffee's first direct trade coffee! This means we are working directly with the growers, Rolyn and Lorena!
Rolyn and Lorena met here in the United States while studying at university. Lorena is from Nicaragua and Rolyn is from Honduras. A few years ago they decided to go back to Nicaragua and start working on a neighboring farm of Lorena's father. They started with the purpose of working with the local community to help increase the livelihood of everyone there.
Rolyn has been rejuvenating the coffee by slowly replacing the previous Catimor coffee plants with Parainema coffee plants.
I am very excited to offer this amazing coffee to you with the help of this amazing couple!
