El Avión

Before 2006, Finca El Avión had never sprouted a coffee tree. These days it gives us impressive specialty coffee and CM Selections lots each year. Located in Mozonte at 1500masl, this farm harvests late in the Nicaraguan coffee season, meaning cherries ripen for a long time and are full of nutrients and sweetness. The catuai and catimor varieties that grow here thrive beneath the shade of huge pine trees, with fallen pine needles providing organic matter and also ground cover for the soil. With an agronomist in the Gonzalez family the soil is impeccably cared for and the trees are lush and healthy. And working alongside Bridazul and Project Origin since 2017 they deliver consistent specialty green coffee beans each year, including microlots and coffees in our CM Selections range.
