Two producers from Mozonte make up Las Colinas coffee. Monzonte is located 235 Kilometres from the capital, Managua, and 9 Kilometres from Caravela’s Beneﬁcio, La Estrella in Ocotal.
Mozonte as a region is well known for the quality of its coffee due to the altitude and the many generations of coffee families that have worked there. The people of this region have close ties to the original indigenous population and are known to be humble and kind.
Farms here receive 1500 to 1800 mm of rainfall per year and Mozonte’s micro-climate is perfect for cultivating natural shading plants and trees including: Guayaba, cuajinicuil, and pines. Caravela began forming relationships in this region in 2012 and installed a drying facility and quality lab in 2013, allowing us to be closer to these producers to help them improve their quality year after year.
