Cerro de Jesus is located in the municipality of Jalapa, Nueva Segovia. The farm sits on the highest mountain in the area and occupies a total area of 281 hectares, with 126 hectares in coffee and the rest wild forest. Altitudes at the farm range from 1100 to 1450 metres above sea level. Cerro de Jesus has a diverse range of luscious vegetation and wildlife brought about by high levels of annual rainfall. There are a number of varieties in full production including Catuai, Caturra, Bourbon, Pacamara and Java growing amongst the shade trees. The farm also provides schooling and meals for children of the 300 workers who live on the farm. Many of the farm workers are from the Comarca El Escambray community. The farm has a wet mill where they do much of the processing for washed and honey processed coffees, before it is transported to the dry mill in Ocotal where it is dried on patios, raised beds or raised beds in the parabolic drier.
