This is the 4th micro lot we feature from El Arbol farm and the best one yet!
In the past 3 years we’ve seen this farm kicking goals and we are excited to share their journey with you.
 
In 2016, Project Origin founder Saša Šestić teamed up with several coffee professionals and producer, Claudia Lovo to purchase Finca El Árbol, in the Dipilto region of Nicaragua.
The name El Árbol (‘the tree’) comes from the giant tree that dominates the centre of the farm.
The goal was to transform El Árbol from a commodity coffee farm to one that could produce high quality, specialty coffee.
With Claudia’s guidance over the last four years, the farm has been transformed from an overgrown commodity farm to a well-maintained sanctuary of flora, fauna, community and specialty coffee.
The farm grows a range of coffee varietals and has been the source of many innovations and experiments in processing techniques.
El Árbol aims to become fully organic by 2025. Claudia and the team are slowly reducing the use of chemicals, gradually replacing them with organic compost from local animals, trees, vegetables and flowers.
The aim is to increase bio-diversity on the farm and in the local area, so that the natural environment itself returns to being self-sustaining and nutrient rich.
This will hopefully also ensure high quality coffee production so that the farm can continue to support full time, year-round workers.
 
Claudia and Sasa have gone to great lengths to ensure that El Árbol is focused on its workers and the community.
Before the farm itself was refurbished, investments were made into the accommodation and resources used by the farm workers and their families.
All meals are cooked on the farm, with all the managers and workers eating together.
Basic healthcare and dental services are provided to all staff and their children, as well as tutors to improve their computer and English-speaking skills.
