The Nova Coffee washing station was once the site of a coffee coop known as COOGIPROCA. After the coop went bankrupt in 2013, Nova bought it and made renovations before starting to buy and process cherries there. They started by selling their parchment to Rogers Family Coffee, with financial help from Ruizi Specialty exporters. In 2015 they approached RTC, looking for more working capital and a strong guaranteed market for their coffee. The high altitudes and rich volcanic soil are ideal growing conditions, and they produce mainly supreme quality.
