  • Cafe de las Sonrisas

    Granada, Nicaragua
    Categories: artwork & crafts, restaurant/cafe
    Cafe de las Sonrisas, or Café of Smiles is a cafe run entirely by people who are either deaf or mute. They have delicious Nicaraguan coffee grown in the northern hills of the country. In addition to running the cafe, they have an amazing workshop next door where they make hammocks by hand. It’s actually the first coffee shop in the Americas, and the 4th of it's kind in the world. Café de las Sonrisas is the brainchild of a man who goes by the name of Tio Antonio, and he runs an NGO by the same name that is dedicated to creating jobs for people who have difficulties that make it hard for them to become integrated in the labor market. Café de las Sonrisas is all about giving people dignity – giving people an opportunity to work, and earn money, and better their lives. The cafe and the adjacent hammock workshop and showroom employs 45 people, not all of them deaf mutes, but all with some life difficulties. That’s 45 lives changed forever. Simply by giving them a job.
