Triangle Coffee

Augusto Cesar Sandino

Augusto Casear SANDINO, was a Nicaraguan revolutionary and leader of a rebellion between 1927 and 1933 against the U.S. military occupation of Nicaragua.

Sandino became a hero to many leftists in Nicaragua and much of Latin America as a Robin Hood figure who opposed domination from wealthy elites and foreigners, such as the United States. His picture and silhouette, complete with the oversized cowboy hat, were adopted as recognized symbols of the Sandinista National Liberation Front.

Coffee farmers and families throughout Nicaragua carry the legacy of Sandino and the Sandinista's into their daily struggle to cultivate some of the worlds finest coffees with a cause.
