Las Nubes

20 small-scale producers
HISTORY

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.

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.
