Nicaraguan Coffee Tasting with Cooperative Aldea Global
October 25, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm EDTFree
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 non-profit 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 us 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.
