In a foggy rainforest with rich climatic conditions, you can find several of the most productive haciendas in the country. The name Las Nubes comes from the beautiful views that the clouds make around the tops of the mountains and over the farms of this region. Las Nubes is made up of coffee from 20 hardworking producers, located in the Cordillera Isabelia. This washed Java lot is made up of individually processed Java lots that have come together to offer a truly unique community blend.

The Cordillera Isabelia is located just 45 km away from the department of Jinotega and is located between this department and the department of Matagalpa. This cordillera is one of the first regions that started with large productions of coffee and most of the farmers there still conserve traditional production techniques.

About Nicaragua Coffee:

Nicaragua is the largest country in Central America between Costa Rica to the South and Honduras to the north with the Caribbean to the East and Pacific West coast.

Nicaragua has been producing coffee for over 200 years, but a turbulent past almost destroyed the industry. Since 1990, after political stability resumed, Nicaragua’s coffee industry has flourished thanks to some well-placed family estates driving the sector forward. Much of the coffee is produced in the highlands of Jinotega and Matagalpa which each produce distinct and unique flavours. Varietals most common in Nicaragua include Bourbon and Caturra – well established classical varietals. Almost all of coffee produced in Nicaragua is shade grown. The shade grown high altitude coffee produces a well-developed, dense hard bean.
