Nicaragua is a fairly new entry into the coffee export world, and they have made quite a splash already. Some experts say that their high grown coffee can give Kona a run for its money, but time will tell. Most Nicaraguan coffee is shade grown and the SHG (strictly high grown) grade is especially important, as the highest grown coffees of Nicaragua do not develop the high acidity that is associated with many Central American coffees. Matagalpa is Nicaragua’s 6th largest city and is known as the “Pearl of the North” and “Land of Eternal Spring” and has an average rainfall of 1,200 to 1,900 mm (47 to 75in).
