El Recreo Cafe Brings Coffee Beans From Nicaragua To Boston


From November through March every year, 380,000 pounds of coffee is harvested, picked, processed and sun-dried by more than 200 Nicaraguan workers at the El Recreo Estate Farm in Jinotega, Nicaragua.

Shipped in containers, some of that coffee makes it way to the U.S., and to Boston, where local entrepreneurs Hector and Miriam Morales roast the beans and sell by the cup at their two Recreo Coffee Roasterie locations in the city.

The Rainforest Alliance-certified coffee farm in Nicaragua is owned by the Ferrey-Machado family and managed by Leana and Carlos, Miriam’s parents.
