This is a smooth, smoky, full-bodied cup with a lingering finish of chocolate. The coffee is grown at 1400 meters above sea level in soil full of clay minerals. The coffee is fully washed and sun-dried.
These beans come from Tierra Madre, a program of women coffee producers from the Aldea Global cooperative in Jinotega, Nicaragua. Through their membership, Tierra Madre women receive an extra premium to help obtain legal title to their land. These titles are key to accessing micro-credit loans for production and other economic activities, which provide a better quality of life for the women and their families. In addition to loans for production, the Tierra Madre program provides credit training for women and support for improving family food security.
Legal title to land may seem like such a simple thing, but it has life changing impact. As one member states, “With Aldea Global’s help I was able to legally register my house. Now I am sure that it is mine and won’t be taken away from me. On my farm, I planted 5,000 coffee trees, all of the coffee is in production”
All in all, it’s a pretty fine thing to be part of, especially when you don’t even have to leave your house to do so. Enjoy.
