The Farm History:
Farm Los Congos is the property of the family since 1997 when it started planting nurseries in a variety of coffee not before grown in Nicaragua , the Pacamara variety. Due to the topography and the cold weather we have focused on growing this variety and have integrated very well into the area. We cultivated 30 Apples of coffee, the wet mill and the Ranch was one Apple, and the rest are cute pine from virgin mountains.
In our family there are four generations that have been devoted to coffee from my dad to my grandson.
