Reserva de Dipilto is produced by 65 small-scale coffee growers settled in la Cordillera of Dipilto, a Natural Reserve with a beautiful biodiversity of flora and fauna, located very close to the frontier with Honduras. The region is popular for the annual celebration of the Guadalupe Virgin feasts, which they often call the Virgen de la Piedra as she is looking after them in a sacred monument above a big rock in Dipilto.

Specialty coffee is what makes Dipilto such a well-known area. Conditions such as elevation, soils, and microclimates make this community ideal for exceptional coffees. Caravela Nicaragua began to work with the small growers in this area in 2012. It was until end of 2013 when we decided to install a cupping lab in Ocotal in order to be closer to the producers and help them produce better quality coffees.

“La Roca is a floral coffee with notes of brown sugar, milk chocolate, and silky body, making an amazing combination between sweet and juicy flavors.”
