Product Overview

Las Diosas is an incredible all-female coffee farming cooperative made up of four smaller primary level cooperatives in Northern Nicaragua representing over 360 women. The co-op is affiliated with Fundacion Entre Mujeres (FEM), one of the most respected women's empowerment organizations in Nicaragua. FEM promotes participation in the economic and social development of rural women in the Department of Estelí, through productive projects, education, technical advice, women's health, workshops on gender awareness, which work towards the improvement of the situation of women in their area.
 
Las Diosas, based in the town of Esteli, not only grows coffee for export, they also produce honey, Jamaica wine and tea, and roasted coffee to sell in local markets. The women have been trained in agroecological farming practices that not only satisfy organic certification, but also go beyond to focus on the health of the soil, other plants, the water, and the entire environment in their communities. Survivors of many hardships in the past ten years including earthquakes, landslides, drought, plant disease, and hurricanes, the women of Las Diosas are fearless, resilient, and persistent in their work.

    Best light roast coffee!!!

    Posted by Kim WN on 19th Sep 2022

    This is my all time favorite coffee so far and I’ve tried many coffee varieties from Sweetwater. Haven’t tried one that I didn’t like, but this one takes the cake for me. Love the flavor and depth for a light coffee. I always buy a light roast, med and dark for variety and to please all the coffee drinkers in our home.

    As expected, it is light tasting but not lacking in flavor. Great for breakfast or an afternoon cup.

    Just Right!

    These beans are roasted just right and not too acidic. I love this roast as much as the old Bolivian they used to have. Totally satisfied! Thanks to the crew and to the growers!
