Nicaraguan Coffee Tasting with Cooperative Aldea Global

October 25, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Nicaraguan Coffee Tasting with Cooperative Aldea Global

Taste the coffee and meet the leaders and farmers behind the internationally recognized Nicaraguan coffee cooperative, Aldea Global, during an interactive tasting and light reception.

Social impact investor Oikocredit is teaming up with Building New Hope, a Pittsburgh based nonprofit who collaborates with Central Americans to build sustainable livelihoods, to introduce you to the delicious taste and compelling stories behind quality organic coffee and the communities that produce it.

Maria Mercedes Aleman will join from the Jinotega region of Nicaragua to share the stories and experience of Aldea Global. Aldea is a recognized leader not only in producing delicious coffee but in building strong and thriving communities where women own land and hold positions of leadership, where farmers retain more of their profits, and where a diverse array of community programs contribute to a sustainable and productive future.

Come for the coffee and stories, stay for the connections with a broad array of locals interested in and working at the intersection of coffee, social investing, and sustainable development.
