Research Areas



Start Date: 1 February 2011 | End Date: 31 July 2012


This project aims to establish geographical indicators and demarcate zones for the designation of origin of different coffee varieties in northern Nicaragua. Activities include the analyses of the quality attributes and coffee profiles and their interaction with the environmental variables. In conjunction with the UNI, we will carry out first pilot consensus workshops in the designation of origin. We also plan to design an atlas of coffee quality in Nicaragua, with an emphasis on the northern zone, and contribute to the training and education of local workers who are members of the alliance institutions.
