The Region

Finca Pompeya is situated inear Ocotal in Dipilto, in the Nueva Segovia department of Nicaragua, close to the Honduras border. The farm is nestled within lush forested hills, making this prime specialty coffee country. Nicaragua has a long history with coffee but over the past few years has become increasingly well known for top specialty coffee due to the influence of producers like Julio and Octavio.

Nueva Segovia boasts some of the highest growing altitudes in Nicaragua. The terrain is as beautiful as it is challenging to traverse, characterised by rolling hills and dense forest, often engulfed by thick clouds.

History of Coffee in Nicaragua  

Coffee came to Nicaragua in the mid-1800's but did not have to compete with well established crops like indigo or banana. It took coffee just 20 years to become the country's number one export and by the dawn of the 20th century, coffee represented 65% of Nicaragua's exports. Between 1895 and 1926, production of coffee in the Jinotega region alone tripled, from 4,500 bags to 13,500. The rapid growth of the industry did not coincide with as much deforestation as other countries in the region and today virtually all Nicaraguan coffee is considered shade grown.
