  • Farmlevel Story

    Farmlevel

    First planted in the late 1800s, shortly after the country gained its independence from the Spanish, Nicaraguan coffee production gathered momentum in the mid-1900s at which time it was largely produced by European settlers.

    Political and economic instability, hurricanes and revolutions stifled the specialty coffee industry through the 1900s beckoning non-governmental organizations like Fair Trade to unify small producers into cooperatives and grower societies. Today, small-holder farmers are at last targeting specialty markets and the lots resulting do not disappoint.

    Jaime Blandon Rivera is one such small farmer, farming his 13-hectare finca La Montañita in Jinotega. After harvesting and pulping and a 15 hour fermentation, Jaime employs a shaded pre-drying before sun-drying on raised beds.
