Finca San Antonio

Our seasonal coffees each come with their own story, which is part of what makes them so special. Here we take a closer look at the producers behind this coffee.

The Farm

The Facts

Harvesting

Social and Environmental Responsibility

A significant portion of coffee production in Nicaragua, nearly 95%, is grown under a shade of native and exotic tree species. This means that Nicaraguan coffee grows in harmony with the surrounding ecosystems and helps promote biodiversity and soil health. This is vital considering the country is heavily deforested – the 108,000 hectares of coffee farms helps preserve the intact forests and stores carbon in the soil. 

45% of San Antonio is protected as El Arenal Nature Reserve, housing one of the few intact portions of the cloud forest in Nicaragua. In 2001, the farm was even declared a Private Wildlife Reserve. 

Thanks to the protection of the native cloud forests, the farm teems with wildlife with creatures such as black panthers, jaguars, deer, collared peccary, coatis, agoutis, and birds such as the bellbird, quetzal, and goldfinches roaming the lands.
