Now Roasting

Nuevo Amanecer – April 2019


Spring is underway, and we’re excited to share with you a coffee perfect for this time of new beginnings. It comes from the Nuevo Amanecer cooperative, which translates to “New Dawn.”

Nuevo Amanecer began their operations in 1994, when a group of pioneering women set out to find a way to better access the market and resources that were historically out of reach for women coffee growers in Nicaragua. When Nuevo Amanecer started, they struggled for financing, as banks wouldn’t grant them loans. Thanks to the generosity of a donor, they were able to invest in the infrastructure needed to start exporting coffee, and paid off their debt after three harvests.

Fast forward to today, Nuevo Amanecer’s 27 members grow some of the most coveted coffee in Nicaragua. We invite you to sip on this delightful coffee and see what ‘new beginnings’ unfold before you.
