This NICARAGUA ORGANIC JINOTEGA PARAISO is sourced from five small farms located in the municipality of Jinotega within the department of Jinotega, Nicaragua. Juan de Dios Castillo and his wife Miriam Aruaz began buying the land to form the Paraíso farms in the 1980’s with money earned from their tailor shop, which is still in operation today.
Much of the coffee business has been passed on to Juan and Miriam’s five children who formed J&M Family Coffee (“J” for Juan and “M” for Miriam) to export high quality coffee without compromising the environment. J&M Family Coffee operates their own wet and dry mill, which gives them full control of processing the coffee.
