Our Nicaragua Organic Jinotega coffee from Finca La Isabelia Los Cipreces is produced by a produced by a family of multi-generation farmers located in the heart of the Jinotega Department, approximately 9 miles northeast of the department’s capital in the picturesque Cordillera Isabella mountains. The Cordillera range cuts through the center of Jinotega, claiming several peaks, a majority of the country’s hiking trails and a large number of small coffee plantations. Finca La Isabelia, the farm that produces this Nicaragua Organic Jinotega coffee takes immense pride in each phase of production, taking their variety of bourbon, caturra, catuaí and catimor trees from cherry to final export. Their soil consists of clay and volcanic ash, and at an elevation of 4,200 ft a natural shade canopy provides cover from excessive sun. This lot of Nicaragua Organic Jinotega coffee is handpicked, washed, sun dried and Smithsonian Bird certified.

Finca La Isabelia, the producer of this Nicaragua Organic Jinotega coffee is part of a large Jinotega growing region where coffee production is permitted, however there is a huge portion of Jinotega that is occupied by protected tropical rainforests and natural forest reserves. Jinotega is one of the nation’s three main growing regions along with the neighboring departments of Matagalpa and Segovia. As a whole, Jinotega produces the lion’s share (about 65%), where it’s tall mountains and oak and pine tree forests create excellent micro-climate growing conditions for arabica. In effect, the majority of Nicaragua’s coffee is shade grown using old-world, sustainable methods that take advantage of these native trees that blanket much of its landscape and farming regions. Producers of this Nicaragua Organic Jinotega coffee as well as Nicaraguan growers as a whole have long been sensitive to the preservation of the environment and biodiversity, and use methods that prevent soil erosion, deforestation and water contamination.
The entire western half of Nicaragua is lined with a string of both active and extinct volcanoes that fall along the notorious Ring of Fire. It’s well known that volcanic ash is a major soil component for growers and luckily locals have not had to suffer any major, life-threatening eruptions in a long time.
