The Peralta Family

The municipality of San Fernando is located around 24 kilometres from the region’s capital, Ocotal and of the 10,000 residents; the vast majority are coffee farmers. Situated in the Nueva Segovia region at altitudes ranging from 1350 to 1550 metres above sea level, Santa Maria de Lourdes embodies a diverse range of luscious vegetation and wildlife brought about by high levels of annual rainfall. The 50 hectares of natural mountainous forest has been under the ownership of Octavio Peralta since 1970, though for many years the area was used as war land during the Sandinista uprising and was heavily mined. The UN cleared the area of mines in the late 1980’s and Octavio began to restore exceptional coffee production to this relatively wild area in 1994. Octavio has been dedicated to this cause as well as preserving the natural habitat which is recognised as a main factor in the production of his fantastic coffee. Of the 80 hectares of available arable land, 40 have been set aside for the sole purpose of maintaining and improving the natural habitat. There is a well equipped kitchen onsite which caters for the 60 permanent workers and 150 pickers during the harvest. The varietals found here include Caturra, Catuai, Java and Pacamara.
