Amid the mountains of northern Nicaragua, in Dipilto, Nueva Segovia, a small coffee farm has surprised many by becoming an example worthy of imitation by the way they work: Las Marias.
Las Marias is a long-standing family business owned by the Hüeck Figueroa & Ponçon Güier families. The families met over 20 years ago. They became good friends and later partners, when they bought their beautiful coffee farm in 2005. They planted most of the farm with new varieties, like Hybrids H3 and Marsellesa, and kept some varieties that were already giving harvest such as Caturra and Bourbon.
Las Marias has been blessed by nature, a fact that translates into coffee of excellent quality. The sandy soil is rich in organic materials. Native trees and leguminous plants provide varied shade. At an altitude of over 1,200 meters above sea level, rainfall is distributed throughout the year.
These factors, combined with optimal farm management and the efforts of many people who participate in different stages of the process, ensure ideal conditions for the production of quality coffee surrounded by a culture of economic, social, environmental and community responsibility.See plans and pricing
