Nicaragua is the poorest country in Central America and the second poorest country in the world. Its people have struggled. Politics, revolution, natural disasters have all conspired against the Nicaraguan coffee industry for the last four decades and it is only now beginning to recover and become known again in the specialty coffee world. Sandwiched between Honduras to the north and Costa Rica to the south, Nicaragua, in terms of climate and terrain, has all the right environment to grow exceptional coffee. The main growing regions are Segovia, Matagalpa and Jinotega.
