About Don Roger, Isabel, and the Finca Las Mercedes
We could not be more excited to be working with Don Roger & Isabel again! With a degree in Agronomy, Don Roger has the knowledge, tips, and technical tricks to produce amazing coffee! Their farm, Las Mercedes, has a clean water source used by the community below the mountain as drinking water and they have a special PVC tubing system underneath the groves of the trees on the farm, ensuring runoff from washing coffee is filtered by the earth instead of polluting streams. Don Roger & Isabel are amazing coffee farmers that we are proud to work with year after year!
About Gold Mountain Coffee Growers
In 2015, Sirius Coffee Roasters was founded, and ever since, we have worked with Gold Mountain Coffee Growers. Located in Nicaragua, the Jinotega and Matagalpa regions have quickly become staff and customer favorites when it comes to their coffee choice! Building our relationship for 7 years and counting, we were immediately drawn to Gold Mountain’s shared devotion to sustainability and excellence.
As a direct trade farming group, Gold Mountain Coffee Growers helps connect the specialty coffee farmers of Nicaragua directly with coffee roasters, overseeing their own export and import shipping across the world. Farms are treated like fine wine vineyards to maintain cup quality and social enterprise. We are constantly floored by the amazing taste of the coffees the farmers of Gold Mountain are able to produce year after year, but Gold Mountain’s impact on their communities and environment is what keeps us as firm supporters.
Gold Mountain offers zero to low-interest loans to farmers to achieve whatever they see fit, provides free computer classes to coffee communities to further their education, and educates farmers and cafes on the human effort it takes to make coffee a reality. Gold Mountain Coffee Growers use chickens to provide natural fertilizer, machetes instead of herbicides to control weeds, mushroom-diluted water spray to reduce the coffee-eating borer beetle, and have an incredible water recycling program that uses volcanic filters. They even bought a rainforest just to protect the natural environment and prevent deforestation at their own expense.
All of that is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the incredible work being done at Gold Mountain Coffee Growers and that is why we could not be more proud to work with them!
