‘A’ Mountain Roast brews new collaboration

NMSU and Estas Manos Coffee Roasters launched “A” Mountain Roast in December 2020. “A” Mountain Roast is available for purchase at estasmanoscoffee.com, Estas Manos popup locations and Las Cruces retailers. A portion of the proceeds will support NMSU’s more than 400 student-athletes.

“The opportunity to work with Estas Manos, and the creation of ‘A’ Mountain Roast, is something I have been looking forward to for some time and a natural extension of our collegiate-licensed products,” says Mario Moccia, NMSU’s Director of Athletics.

Estas Manos Coffee Roasters was founded in 2018 by Nicholas Gonzales, along with his business partner, Leandra Gamboa ’13. The grassroots business works to help farmers and farming communities in Latin America through sustainable coffee sourcing and production.
