Three Queens Blend x Nov-Dec 2018
This month’s Vega Coffee is from Three Queens coffee, the result of partnership between three incredible women producers from Nicaragua: Ivania Calderon of Finca Alborada, Ramona Diaz of Finca El Oasis and Alexa Marin of Finca San Antonio. As participants in our special collaboration with Emory University’s Grounds for Empowerment, an incubator program for smallholder women coffee producers, Ivania, Ramona and Alexa are leading their family farms and thriving, navigating ecological challenges, gender discrimination and a climate of civil unrest, while producing some of the finest coffees in Nicaragua.
These barrier-breaking women pour heart and tenacity into every bean. And they’ve inspired the next generation—Ivania, Ramona and Alexa’s adult children have come to Vega HQ to learn with our farmer roaster team.
This season, we honor the three queens behind the name by bringing a special Vega Coffee blend to your table in time for the holidays. We believe in the power of coffee to bring love and connection.
May your holiday season be filled with a bounty of each.
