Nicaragua La Argentina
Nicaragua’s premier coffee region is the Nueva Segovia, notably around Cordillera de Dipilto to Jalapa, the mountainous region that runs along the Honduran border and is renowned for producing Cup of Excellence winning lots. The high altitude, excellent climatic conditions and close proximity to the mills all contribute to the exceptional quality of the coffee.
Roger Peralta and his family have owned the beautiful 80 hectare Finca La Argentina since 1920. It is located a steep 30-minute drive from the local mill town of Ocotal (Nueva Segovia’s capital), deep in the stunning mountain forest where many varieties of indigenous tree and types of flora and fauna flourish, providing ample shade for the Caturra, Catuai and Javanica that grows there.
Finca La Argentina is managed by Juan Carlos together with 40 permanent employees and 150 pickers during the harvest
