Deep in the north of Nicaragua we have found a region where farmers strive to produce a unique and special product. La Esmeralda is a community devoted to the production of coffee of the highest quality. This community is located in Jinotega, Nicaragua at 1,175 mts above sea level. Mercon has developed strong relations with the producers of this area which expand over 217 hectares of coffee. Together, this group produces a total of 6,800 coffee bags of 60kg of caturra, marseillesa and catuai varieties. The producers from La Esmeralda work closely with the Group and receive support through services such as technical assistance, financing and market information.
