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.
Finca Las Brumas was established by the Paguaga family in 1997. It is located in the San Fernando mountains close to the Honduran border adjacent to its sister farm, Finca Los Congos, and sharing similar topography. The mountain is covered with a pine tree forest and native animals roam around freely without being disturbed. There is a micro-mill at the farm that employs traditional practices for the washed method followed by a water filtration system to ensure the water is clean before reentering the nearby stream.
