The Rums of Central America

Centario rum

One of the great benefits of traveling through Central America is that it’s easy to find really good rum for a ridiculously low price. While most people associate rum with the Caribbean, many of the best ones actually come from the mainland of Central America. They might not be as famous or as heavily marketed brands like Bacardi, but that’s a good thing. Thanks to more abundant sources of fresh spring water and the ability to store the barrels above sea level, these often beat out the island brands in international tasting competitions.

Discovering Coffee Culture in Nicaragua

Coffee beans

Coffee has played an important role in Nicaragua since its arrival in the 1800’s. Large-scale coffee crops started making an appearance in the 1850’s and by 1870, coffee was the primary export crop of Nicaragua. According to the Equal Exchange Co-op, whose mission is to foster mutually beneficial relationships between farmers and consumers, more than 40,000 coffee-farm families cultivate coffee beans, many of which help preserve the country’s forests and threatened biodiversity. By the late 1990’s, coffee production contributed $140 million US to Nicaragua’s economy and provided the equivalent of 280,000 permanent agricultural jobs. It’s estimated that 95% of Nicaragua’s coffee farmers are micro and small-scale producers.
