Most of Nicaragua’s coffee is grown at altitudes between 800 and 1400 metres, falling in to the Strictly High Grown (SHG) categorisation used in several Central American countries. Key growing regions include the mountainous areas of Matagalpa and Jinotega, though it is Nueva Segovia that is heralded as Nicaragua’s premier growing region, particularly the Cordillera de Dipilto – a mountainous area which runs along the Honduran border.

Finca Aurora is owned and managed by Enrique Ferrufino, a third-generation coffee farmer. The farm is located very close to the city of Matagalpa, and is situated between 1200 and 1350masl. Most of the coffee grown is of the catuai variety, but there are also large areas of Java. Java is a variety that originates in Ethiopia and is very similar Ethiopian landrace types, it is very tolerant of coffee leaf rust and coffee berry disease and is relatively productive, as well as having a very floral cup profile. As a family of coffee producers that spans three generations, the Ferrufinos are not only invested in growing and processing high quality coffee, but they also place great emphasis on environmental conservation and the use of renewable energy.
