Our Producers

Nicaragua

Coastal Coffee Company works with four different micro lots in Nicaragua.  We have met our producers personally, and are proud to have to have created viable partnerships and long-lasting friendships with these incredible men.

La Esperanza

Armando-Zeledon

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

La Esperanza is owned and operated by Armando Zeledon, two-time finalist in the Cup of Excellence competition. Armando has built a reputation as one of the top coffee producers in terms of quality in the San Juan Del Rio Coco region. His estate uses traditional washing methods and Armando personally supervises the picking to ensure only the ripest cherries are picked.

Las Golondrinas

Rodrigo-Peralta

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Las Golondrinas has won the Cup of Excellence at the international level, twice and Sr. Rodrigo Peralta has made it mission to serve the finest coffee possible.  This estate is nestled in a unique and diverse ecosystem that provides optimal growing conditions due to its perfect combination of shade, precipitation and elevation, and under the watchful eye of Sr. Rodrigo Peralta, the estate flourishes. Rodrigo embraces innovation where it provides advantages without undue sacrifice, and the harvested coffee cherries are washed and processed utilizing proven modern techniques, always with an eye towards improving final cup quality.

Los Delirios

Canales Brothers

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sr. Señor Daniel Canales and his three sons are true pioneers in the cultivation of specialty coffee in Nicaragua and gained international acclaim, after winning the inaugural Cup Of Excellence in Nicaragua.  As their production expanded, they were able to re-invest in modern equipment for farming and washing purposes. The family was one of the first organic certified farms in Nicaragua, and continue to produce with an unwavering belief in preservation of land, plants and wildlife.

Ojo De Agua

Danilo-Gonzalez

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ojo de Agua has operated under three generations of coffee producers and is carefully cared for under the watchful eye of Senor Danilo Gonzalez.  For producers like Sr. Gonzalez, who is a two-time Cup of Excellence finalist, coffee is not merely a commodity, but an investment in both the history of the land, and in the future they will share with their families. Coffee cultivation permeates throughout the household and is truly a part of everyday living, where the children and grand-children are raised and bear witness to the labour and passion that goes into producing specialty coffee.

Colombia

Farmer Chalo also goes by Mr Perfect because he is such a great guy.  Chalo’s Colombian Coffee is a 4th-generation, quality-focused coffee growing family from Huila, Colombia that produces 100% Specialty Grade, Arabica Castillo coffee through fully sustainable farming practices.  This plantation is located in the township of Caloto in the Municipality of Paicol within Colombia’s beautiful, mountainous province of Huila. The coffee trees grow amongst orange, mandarin and banana trees, sugar cane and tropical fruits such as mango, pineapple and guama  This adds to the coffee’s unique flavour and sweetness.

Rwanda

We work with various coffee producers from the Rusizi district of Rwanda.  This area is very unique in that it is one of only two places in Rwanda with mineral-rich volcanic soil, resulting in strong coffee trees and delicious coffee.

Brazil

Brazil also offers rich, volcanic soil and we work with various coffee producers here as well. The combination of the excellent soil, unique climate, and altitude makes Brazil an ideal location to produce specialty coffees.

 
All other specialty coffee is sourced from various specialty green coffee suppliers.
