Background Details

Nicaragua Jinotega Colibri Azul SGH EP is sourced from family-owned farms organized around Asociación Aldea Global Jinotega (Aldea Global), an organization operating in the department of Jinotega, Nicaragua.  Aldea Global has more than 500 members and 47 per cent are women, the result of investing revenues in gender equality programs focused on healthcare and small business lending.  Colibri Azul is produced on farms surrounding the Cerro Datanlí - El Diablo cloud forest reserve that is home to more than 250 bird species, some in danger of extinction.  Aldea Global has invested in ecotourism and watershed protection projects as a way to preserve this natural resource.
