The most celebrated coffee region in Nicaragua is Nueva Segovia. For many years the majority of Cup of Excellence winners come from this region. The high altitudes of the farms in this region make for difficult conditions for the producers, but with rewarding coffees as result. Furthermore, Nueva Segovia is characterized by the large amount of small producers.

Traditionally, these producers did not have access to the higher paying specialty coffee markets due to a lack of infrastructure and market knowledge. However, working with Expocamo has enabled these farmers to now also access this market. Although some farmers may have small farms and produce little amounts of coffee, being part of the Flor Silvestre blend bundles their power into a consistent blend representative of the *high slopes of the Dipilto - Jalapa mountain range in Nueva Segovia.
