This organically-grown coffee comes from five small farms located in the municipality of Jinotega within the department of Jinotega, Nicaragua. Juan de Dios Castillo and his wife Miriam Aruaz began buying the land to form the Paraíso farms in the 1980’s with money earned from their tailor shop, which is still in operation today. Juan and Miriam have passed on much of the coffee business to their five children, who formed J&M Family Coffee (“J” for Juan and “M” for Miriam). Their mission is to export high quality coffee without compromising the environment.
