Datanlí is produced by medium and small-scale producers from close to Datanlí, a small town inside the municipality of Jinotega. This town and the community which lives there is famous for being self-sufficient and welcoming to travelers, who come from all around the world to witness a unique example of the coexistence of environment and man. Here the agriculture which takes place (including coffee) does not detract from where is grows but forms part of the greater ecosyste.

The name Datanlí comes from the mountains that form part of the nature reserve Datanlí- El Diablo. Datanlí is an indigenous word that means “where water falls.” This region is one of the richest and most diverse ecosystems in Jinotega, a place with beautiful and impressive forests and where water sources that originate at the top of the mountains flow all the way down to the farms of countless coffee growers that lie below. The water that falls from Datanlí help these producers, matched with the favorable climatic conditions and their hard work, to produce outstanding specialty coffees.
