Description: Cafe Vidita has a truly inspiring story that portrays their passion for coffee unlike any other. Rina's father, Jose Rene Paguaga, started his own farm as a teen, growing and expanding until the civil war reached Nicaragua in 1979 and forced him to move his family to Honduras. The Paguagas lost their Nicaraguan farms, but by the time Jose was in his 70s, they were back in Nicaragua on new operations- starting from scratch. Today, three generations of Paguagas are involved in the production of this excellent coffee.
Beneficio de Cafe Santa Lucila was the first wet/dry mill in the Nueva Segovia region, established in 1960. It is owned and operated by the Paguaga family. Having their operations tightly integrated enables them to have full control over the production chain until the coffee is exported.
