From aromas of honey and peach sweet tea, to peach and caramel on the front end of the cup, this coffee offers rounded acidity, silky body, and lingering white chocolate sweetness. As it cools, red apple mingles with subtle spice notes.

Meet ​Olga Esperanza Santos

Finca Bella Aurora occupies 35 hectares of prime coffee growing land​ high in the mountains near Dipilto, Nueva Segovia. Here the coffee plants grow under the shade of Inga and banana trees, and Olga and her family are committed to environmental sustainability. They told Theodore’s Coffee, “We take care of our water sources. We use our water responsibly...We cannot continue destroying the farms because they are ours. Later on Mother Nature will charge us with drought and lack of fruits what we have taken from her.”

At Bella Aurora, Olga and her family filter the water they used to process their coffee before releasing it back into the environment. They also compost their coffee pulp to use as fertilizer, prunings are used as fuel, and Olga employs sustainable methods of pest and disease control. She says, “My son Luis and I can say that we may be small producers but with a big consciousness.”

Nueva Segovia, Nicaragua

In the north of Nicaragua, sharing a border with Honduras, we find the lush Nueva Segovia region. People lived in this area thousands of years before Columbus landed, and these days, ethnic groups and more recent citizens form a rich cultural collage. Farms are small--averaging around three hectares, and the region itself is smaller than the more well-known Matagalpa or Madriz areas. Be that as it may, it has all the elements that make for quality coffee: shade, fertile soil, high elevations, and of course, careful cultivation and processing.

Some exciting specialty coffees are coming out of the the mountains of Nueva Segovia. Since 2005, farmers and co-operatives have been entering Cup of Excellence contests, consistently placing. CoE juries’ descriptions border on the effusive. Most agree that sweet, floral, and balanced apply.

Theodore's Coffee

Darwin Pavon founded Theodore's Coffee in 2014, after years working in Honduras collecting soil samples from farmers' fields in a push to create fertilizers for stronger growth and yield. Each Honduran coffee imported for Theodore's is sourced from a friend of Darwin's in the ultimate Direct Trade relationship. Pavon says,

"At Theodore's our passion is to bring to you superior quality coffee, serve you with excellence and create loyalty from you to our products and services in the coffee industry."

Every coffee you buy from Theodore's helps support The Micah Project, in Tegucigalpa, Honduras, where young men and boys who have grown up on the streets or in extreme poverty are trained in leadership and healthy life skills. Pavon has a strong passion to support The Micah Project, as he was an original Micah's resident who 'made good'.
