Casa del Café, a Nicaraguan company with 21 retail stores and cafes in major cities including Managua, Granada, and Leon, now bakes using coffee flour made from Nicaraguan-grown coffee. Dan Belliveau, founder of CF Global Holdings, Inc., said, “[Casa del Café] produces their own line of pastries and desserts and have done some great work with integrating coffee flour into some of their most popular products.”
Chocolate chip cookies, carrot muffins, brownies, and vanilla orange cake now all incorporate coffee flour.
Preceding the launch of these new menu items, Belliveau’s company made its first payment to the farmers who supplied the cherry waste which became the coffee flour used by Casa de Café. He said, “It was a memorable event.”
Casa del Café will continue adding menu items that use coffee flour. Customers can expect to see breads, rolls, and pastry crusts as the culinary team redevelops the lunch menu.
