Nicaragua Coffee Farm Visits, Matagalpa

A trip to see a complete coffee operation, the mill and farms of the Mierisch family, from 2006.

Way back in time, I visited the Mierisch family in Matagalpa to see their mill and farms. A wonderful short trip, with some photos to share! Horses, Java coffee cultivar, Yellow Pacamara… all kinds of stuff!

It was the first time to see some of these newer varieties they were growing, and other innovations like their biogas collection. And to ride horses! Fincas Mierisch has grown and changed since this time, but I think their focus on quality and their coffee practices haven’t changed at all.
