    Matagalpa & Jinotega

    Matagalpa and Jinotega are the two main coffee regions of Nicaragua. The farms are spread among world-famous reserves, such as Selva Negra, are located at an altitude of 800 to 1250 meters above sea level and produce more than 60% of all green coffee beans from Nicaragua. Most of these beans can be considered organic, but they do not have international bio- and organic certificates due to their value, which is too high for farmers in the poorest country in the region. In fact, farmers produce organic coffee because they are forced to save on chemical fertilizers, which are becoming more expensive every day.

    Nueva Segovia

    The highlands of Nueva Segovia are located at the Honduras border and traditionally win most of the prizes in the Cup of Excellence. Favorable climate with high rainfall forms a bright enzyme profile in a cup with pronounced tartaric acidity.

    In the 1980s, specialty coffee production began in Nicaragua's neighboring countries: Costa Rica, El Salvador and Guatemala. However, Nicaragua fell behind due to political and economic unrest during the long period of the revolution (1974 - 1990). In 1985, the United States imposed an embargo on imports from Nicaragua – another blow to the industry. Hurricane Mitch destroyed almost all infrastructure, and the global coffee crisis of 1999-2003 contributed to the deterioration in quality of the beans in all coffee-producing countries.
