“El Eden”, a six-acre micro-lot, is part of “Finca La Virgen,” a family-run, multi-crop farm of more than a hundred acres of lush canopy, nestled within Pueblo Nuevo in the north-west of Nicaragua. The farm was all but abandoned by the previous owner until it was purchased by the Gonzalez family in 1996.

This precious micro-lot was in less than desirable shape at first. Little of the existing growth could be salvaged for future crops and it became clear that new coffee nurseries would need to be planted immediately to give the lot a fighting chance. For nearly a decade, the Gonzalez family worked the lot while participating in the El Eden coffee Cooperative (its namesake) where they successfully gained organic certification through the Organic Crop Improvement Association (OCIA).

Today “El Eden” is an independent micro-lot aiming to tackle quality with the same verve as Nicaragua’s top specialty producers. Small but with vast potential, this unassuming micro-lot, the passion project of Lester Gonzalez, caught our attention by its quality, community, and commitment to improve.

It is with great pleasure that we offer you this very special coffee for the second time. Source: Green Haven Imports
