Get to Know More About Cafe Etico
Café ético is proud of its close relationship with its two major partners, the Pancasán Association of Coffee Producers (ACOPAN) and the Campesino Committee of the Highlands (CCDA).
The Pancasán Association Of Coffee Producers (ACOPAN)
The members of ACOPAN grow high quality beans in the Matagalpa region of Northern Nicaragua. ACOPAN includes 18 coffee producing families, and is part of the Flor de Pancasán Multi-service Cooperative. ACOPAN was founded in 1990 when the Association for the Development and Diversification of Organic Agriculture (ADDAC) began working with farmers to assist them in the diversification of their land and encourage organic agriculture. This organic diversification was part of an overall strategy to rehabilitate land previously farmed by large landowners using unsustainable farming practices based on monocultures, and dependent on chemical pesticides and fertilizers and exploitative labour relations. Through their dedication to organic agriculture, ACOPAN members and other small-scale farmers in the Flor de Pancasán Cooperative have transformed once-exhausted soil to rich, fertile land where an abundance of crops and animals thrive.
