Don Sabino has been one of our longest standing producer partnerships. Brice met Don Sabino in spring 2017 on one of the early Velodrome sourcing trips. We’ve bought some of each harvest ever since. Don Sabino has a small farm tucked into an incredible valley surrounded by protected rainforest. He tends to do things the old fashioned way using oxen on his steep farm and used to primarily grow root crops and vegetables before switching to specialty coffee. His careful attention to wet milling and drying really helps create a consistent cup year to year. Through Gold Mountain Coffee Growers, Don Sabino has access to resources such as raised drying beds, harvesting techniques, as well as a market place to help connect his quality coffee to roasters willing to pay a premium. Gold Mountain Coffee Growers is a socially minded business owned by a coffee farmer working to transform the direct trade market of coffee in Nicaragua. We look forward to many more harvests from Don Sabino and his family. We are inspired by Don Sabino’s appreciation for the environment and commitment to quality coffee.
