About the region

Producing Region

North Central: Matagalpa, Jinotega and Boaco


November - February

Large scale coffee production began in the 1850’s and quickly became a critical component of the Nicaraguan economy.

The North part of the country accounts for the majority of production and once again the volcanic and mountainous topography of the land provide fantastic conditions to cultivate coffee. The 1990s saw political and economic stability which brought about more focus on coffee production and there have been many public programs established to support coffee crops.

Some Nicaraguan coffees carry the designation  ‘European Preparation’, this is grading on the bean size that ensures 100% of the coffee is above Sreen 15; with an allowance of 8 defects per 300g maximum.  Coffees grown between 1500 and 2000 MASL have the designation Strictly High Grown. [SHG]

Our range of Nicaraguan coffees include some delightful microlots sourced by us and our sister company. Every year we have seen stunning microlots out of La Bastilla Estate who produced the El Penon in 2015 and Blueberry Candy in 2016. This year’s Blueberry Candy is sensational, joined by two new Honey Processed microlots, Honey Buena Vista and Honey El Buey.
