This coffee grows in the regions of Jinotega and Matagalapa in the north of Nicaragua. The two cities after which the regions are named, are both situated in green valleys surrounded by high mountains typical for this part of Nicaragua. This allows coffee farmers to let their beans dry in the sunlight after harvest. Coffee plants of a special type variety called Maragogype are the preferred choice of local producers. The respective plants are distinguishable from others by their extraordinarily large leaves, cherries and beans. They produce less beans that are in return known for their very intense flavor.
