Jinotega and Matagalpa are located in the north of the Central Mountains of Nicaragua, 160 km from the capital city of Managua. The towns of Jinotega and Matagalpa are located in a valley surrounded by high mountains. About 80% of all Nicaraguan coffee is produced in Jinotega. In addition, we need a climate of a humid tropical forest with rich vegetation. Under the shade of other trees, maragogype berries ripen slowly, which allows you to develop a deeper and more interesting taste. Jinotega, known as La Ciudad de las Brumas (city of mists), is located next to Lake Apanas.
