Finca Los Alpes
Nicaragua

Farm

Finca Los Alpes is a coffee farm located in the Cerro Kilambé natural reserve in the district of Jinotega in Nicaragua. The untouched cloud forest surrounding it is 1800 metres above sea-level and offers the ideal terroir for coffee cultivation. The Caturra and Tipica varieties grow in the shade of the jungle and their taste benefits from the enormous bio-diversity of the area as well as the altitude. All cherries are picked by hand, only when they are ripe. After the fully-washed processing the coffee seeds are transported to the Beneficio, a coffee processing plant, on the backs of donkeys. They are the only mode of transportation that can navigate the difficult three-hour track through the jungle with such a heavy load.

Philip's journey

Our founder Philip Feyer has journeyed to see this fascinating place for himself and to learn from the farmers first-hand. The producer Ulrich Salamun, an Austrian operating several coffee farms in Nicaragua, is a welcoming host. He has devoted himself to sustainable farming and Direct-Trade with partners willing to pay a premium for quality. He has made long-term investments in regional coffee culture, development of school projects, counselling for other farmers and more. We are very proud of this coffee and its transparent supply chain.
