The Nicaraguan coffee trade has gone through turbulent times since it began in the mid-1800s, enduring periods of both high and low demand.
In recent decades the Nicaraguan coffee trade has been hurt by civil war and hurricanes as well as the U.S. bans on Nicaraguan imports during the cold war.
Nicaraguan coffee is now beginning to make a comeback to its former popularity. The coffees of Nicaragua are classified, or graded, based upon the altitude at which they are grown.
It’s imported by green coffee importers, who partner with distributors and brokers in Central America to get unroasted green coffees into the United States and Canada in container-quantities (usually 45,000 lbs).
They then separate the 132-lb bags for wholesale to coffee roasting companies who use it in their own brands and blends.
