Our passion begins in NICARAGUA, the home of Santa Lucia’s coffee origin. Known for distinct quality and an exceptionally low acidic, easy drinking cup our integrated program between Nicaragua and our client’s doors has eliminated one level of the distribution chain. Over the last 24 years this has allowed us to keep costs lower and maintain a premium product.

These 100% Arabica beans have passed the test of time. We work hands on to source our product from this Central American country’s beautiful high mountain regions which make for perfect coffee growth and harvesting. The climate of these high mountain rain forests provides the shade necessary to nurture and develop healthy coffee cherries. Soil in these mountain climates is rich in minerals which helps generate amazingly consistent crops year after year.
With traceability to the source farm, beautiful shade grown, hand washed, sorted and patio dried coffee gems travel to be roasted in the US. We only use the top 20-25% beans available from limited lots of production which we select by size, equal shape and humidity. This quality helps the beans hold up through processing, roasting and brewing process. Last but not least is the end user and following our small batch roasting Santa Lucia distributes to some of the greatest Chefs and Restaurateurs, Caterers and Connoisseurs we know: people and organizations that care about drinking and serving a great cup of coffee!
