PRODECOOP— Esteli, Nicaragua
In the mountains of Northern Nicaragua, 38 base cooperatives composed of 2,300 small farmers grow and sell coffee together as the PRODECOOP cooperative in Esteli, Madriz and Nuevo Segovia. 30% are women-owned farms. On average they export 30,000 bags each year — about 50% of which are Certified Organic.
The cooperative provides services such as marketing, cooperative development including technical assistance, training, credit funds, improving coffee quality and social projects to promote food security and gender equality. PRODECOOP’s motto is “Behind every cup of coffee, there is a family.”
We’re proud to purchase coffee from this cooperative — their coffees are featured in some of our most popular blends!
