La Estrella comes from 126 different producers from the department of Nueva Segovia, situated 225 km from Nicaragua’s capital, Managua. This is a region very close to the border with Honduras and is part of the Cordillera de Dipilto Nature Reserve, a place with a rich biodiversity of flora and fauna. The name La Estrella comes from the Beneficio La Estrella, the coffee mill founded in 2013 by Caravela Nicaragua. It is located in the municipality of Ocotal. In 2015, we created a blend of different coffees from producers living close to the mill. For La Estrella, the coffee comes from producers in different municipalities around Nueva Segovia such as Macuelizo, Dipilito, San Fernando, Mozonte y Jalapa.
