Nicaragua SHG EP Plus Coffee
Nicaragua, the largest country in Central American peninsula bordered by Honduras and Costa Rica, engaged in coffee production not until the mid of 19th century after the high-priced Brazilian markets created opportunities for other coffee growing nations. Subsequently, a series of catastrophic events and political upheavals marred the production and reputation of good Nicaraguan coffees till it was revived in the wake of free elections & trade in the 1990s.
Coffee, being an integral part of Nicaragua’s economy, supports more than forty thousand families of small scale farmers and harvesters (standard farm size of meagre 1 to 14 hectares) who own and operate the farms. The thriving coffee industry has created job opportunities for mid to small size farmers who not only process gourmet varieties of coffees but take part in forest preservations, enhance skills for export quality coffee cultivations and maintain better working standards to meet the wholesale demands for Central American coffees worldwide. Almost 95% of Nicaraguan coffees are grown under tree canopies, of various native and exotic tree shades, thus strengthening the ecological harmony and bio-diversity.
Coffee Growing Region

From milling to quality control of specialty coffees, the farm has been adapting to the vastly changing specialty coffee export market scenario with superior quality micro-lot outputs like the El Bosque Yellow Honey variety or the La Cascada Natural, mostly favored for their tropical, juicy and floral punches.
