Finca Un Regalo de Dios (Gift from the Gods) is located in the Dipilto-Jalapa mountain range of Nicaragua—in the municipality of Mozonte (in the community of Quisuli). This farm is one of several owned by Luis Alberto Balladarez Moncada and it's pretty massive at 179 acres, with around 130 acres planted in coffee.
The farm has a rich biodiverse environment of fauna and flora, with an abundance of broad-leaved trees and conifer species. All of this together creates for optimal coffee growing conditions. The care and processing that goes into every lot that is processed in this farm are second to none, with careful detail at every stage, starting with optimal cherry-picking at the farm level all the way through carefully controlled fermentation and drying.
Luis won the Cup of Excellence (COE) this year, placed 1st and 5th place in the COE Nicaragua in 2018, as well as 13th and 3rd place in 2017.
