The Farm

Our family farm, Cerro de Jesus, is located in highest mountain region of Norther Nicaragua.  Abundant in biodiversity, this mountainous landscape and vibrant climate cultivate the potential for Trail Coffee’s flavors and aromas. 

When we started the farm we made the commitment to support the growth of the community who helps cultivate our coffee. We’re proud to provide a schoolhouse, as well as dormitories and meals for more than 70 permanent resident-workers and up to 500 during picking season. Our farm is the longest standing permanent employer in the region.

 
 
 
 
 
 

Company History

Our story began in the 70’s high up in Nicaragua’s cloud forest where our farmstead flourishes today. Our founder’s fascination with this land turned into a lifestyle and eventually a budding coffee business that led our Trail across the globe.

As we continue growing and searching for the best, most responsibly sourced coffee, our journey has led us all the way to California’s own fertile landscape, the San Joaquin Valley. This is where we share the fruits of our global community with our local community in Stockton, CA.
