We have worked with a wonderful new producing partner in Nicaragua called Gold Mountain, who work super closely with their selected producers to help create and sustain some amazing coffees.

From Gold Mountain:

"It took us several years to track down Don Isidro, who we had heard produces wonderful Caturra coffee at a very high altitude. To keep the watershed clean, Don Isidro followed our example and built water filters to clean water after it is used to wash coffee. He funded that project through a quality premium from Gold Mountain Coffee Growers. We're thrilled that Don Isidro cares about the environment and took the initiative to use his quality premium in this way. And his coffee's profile is complex and awesome!"

Gold Mountain Coffee Growers is a social enterprise that, in addition to its own farm (Finca Idealista), works directly with coffee producers in Nicaragua, including Isidro, to connect them with roasters abroad. GMCG is on the ground, all the time, teaming up with producers willing to take the steps necessary (and whose altitude and soil conditions allow them) to produce high-cupping speciality coffee. We literally stand on every partner farm during picking to ensure ripeness with refractometers and ripeness bracelets. GMCG also carries out sustainable development projects in communities, such as free computing classes for girls from coffee communities, medical assistance, microcredit, running water in schools, and educational supplies.
