Santa Maria is one of seven estates that reach across Jinotega and Matagalpa and are owned by Victor Robelo as part of the Las Nubes group. Originally bought in the late nineties after the cessation of action by the Contras, the farms were planted with his fathers’ favourite varietals, Yellow Catuai and Caturra. The Santa Maria farm itself produces mainly Caturra, and under the managerial eye of Jimmy Mierisch is focused on producing high quality lots with new processing methods.
Victor himself is the third generation of his family owning farms in coffee since 1937. Ownership in the family went through hard times with the conflict when they were forced off the land, but he has since come back to purchase and restore the farms his father owned with a purpose to have a high-performance and high-quality coffee.
Speaking to ACE when he won the Cup Of Excellence back in 2017 he attributed the ongoing success to the team he works with.
We always recommend buying wholebean coffee as this is the best for freshness. We are however happy to grind our coffee to your specification if this is how you would prefer it. Please note, we only supply ground coffee in 227g and 500g bags.
