Santa Martha Cafe

SMC is a direct importer of Nicaraguan Coffee from a small group of farmers in Santa Martha de Loma Azul, Jinotega, Nicaragua. Because we are a small direct trade importer and deal directly with the farmers they receive a fair market value for their green beans. This is reflected in our pricing and with every bag you purchase you are helping too. We have traveled to the region several times over the years helping to improve their farming practices and education therefore helping to improve their lives. As a Micro Roaster in Omaha, NE we strive to achieve a roasting level that brings out the natural flavor and quality of the coffee beans.
