Unser feiner Lagerfeuer-Kaffee ist als Kaffee- und Espressoröstung erhältlich und schmeckt natürlich am Besten in der freien Natur oder im Camper. Aber auch am Frühstückstisch zuhause ist er total lecker. Die Bohnen kommen von der Rizo-Family in Nicaragua und werden direkt in Schwabach in der Rösterei Blaues Haus Kaffee geröstet.

The Pan-American Highway North goes to Nicaragua’s central region, which in contrast to the volcano-lagoon-sprinkled flatlands of the Pacific, is characterized by its high-relief geography, like its numerous hills, mountains and highlands. In the northwest, the cool mountains of Matagalpa and Jinotega are located where cloud forests mix with coffee plantations. One of those coffee plantations has belonged to the Rizo family for more than 200 years. A total of 400 ha is owned by them, focusing on specialty coffee cultivation. In 2013, half of their trees, mostly Caturra variety, were hit hard by the destructive fungus “roya”. As part of an ambitious renovating process, the farm replanted 200 ha with the roya-resilient varieties Castilla, Parainema and Marsellesa. This contributes to a healthy set-up of the whole farm, as half of the trees are still young. The Rizo family aims to approach coffee cultivation from a holistic perspective: from seedlings to wet and dry milling, they are in total control of their own quality. Another 200 ha of forest ensure that all coffees are shade-grown. Their reforestation efforts focus on protecting the native fauna and flora as well as water sources. About 250 employees are permanently working at Potrerillos, during harvest season it is up to 1,000 people. Most of them live on the farm area as well, with Potrerillos providing infrastructure such as housing, meals and a basic clinic. Education is one of the pillars the family believes in very strongly: one of the farm areas is dedicated only to schooling. More than 180 students attend classes from pre-kindergarten to a secondary education level. There are even additional learning facilities to receive a technical degree in farm management. The fully equipped school programs are free for children living on the farm as well as for the ones from the neighboring communities.
