Nicaragua: Finca La Bastilla

Finca La Bastilla, a high-altitude forested coffee farm in Nicaragua’s Jinotega department, perfectly complements the protected forest area that borders it. The farm hasn’t always been such a good neighbor to the adjacent land, however. Prior owners encouraged high production that pushed the soil to its limits, and La Bastilla was abandoned for three years before the current owner took charge and raised the farm to Rainforest Alliance certification standards for sustainability.
