For our first honey processed coffee we could not have asked for anything better than this Nicaragua Rajuanse Estate Marsellesa Honey, from the first sample roast we knew this was a special coffee.

This fantastic coffee comes from Buena Esperanza Farm, the crown jewel of Rajuanse Estates, located in the beautiful mountain valleys of Matagalpa, Nicaragua.
In November 2013, the farm was acquired by the Ortiz Stoessel family, a Nicaragua Peruvian family venture. Buena Esperanza presented an opportunity to restructure the framework of the farm with modern day standards and practices.
The new operation was named RAJUANSE Estates and they started focusing on renewal of all coffee plants, protection of its natural water springs, reforestation and protection of its natural forest, also uniting neighbouring communities in a common interest of sustainability.
During the first three years, Buena Esperanza planted 500,000 new coffee plants per year. It began its certification program and in 2016 it was certified by two major sustainability programs.
The farm is committed to maintaining a sustainable footprint and has identified 50% of the land to keep and protect its natural forest.
