Welcome! Bettr Coffee
The farms of the Las Nubes (The Clouds) community dot the border between Matagalpa and Jinotega, high up into the mountains. Many of farms are still off the electric grid. The community includes a women-led coop as well as other small farming families who take extra care to remove imperfections on raised screens before sending their coffee to be sun-dried in the valley below. The relationships between Las Nubes and Gold Mountain Coffee Growers results in high-cupping coffee, and highest prices paid that many of these farmers have ever received.
The community has been working extra hard to separate their coffees by producer in order to effectively regulate quality. GMCG donated all materials needed to install running water in one of the community’s schools while parents of students installed the piping (to ensure community ownership). Students from the community attend GMCG’s free computing classes every week.
