ZusammenfassungThis paper concerns the local payoffs of coffee certification in a case study region in
Jinotega, Northern Nicaragua. It aims to answer two questions. First, does certification
significantly improve the income of smallholder coffee farmers in Nicaragua? Second, if
yes, how far do these income improvements help coffee farmers to find a sustainable
livelihood above the poverty line? In order to answer these questions, we carried out
empirical field research in which we conducted a semi-structured household survey in the
Jinotega Municipality of North-central Nicaragua. A total of 238 certified and noncertified
coffee farmers were selected through a stratified random sampling procedure
and interviewed. Certified farmers were taken as the treatment group and non-certified
ones as the control group. Both the gross margin analysis and regression analysis are
employed to show the likely income and poverty differences between the treatment and
control groups controlling for other relevant factors. The results reveal that the coffee
certification program of Jinotega municipality does indeed improve the income of the
participating farmers. However, these income improvements are not sufficient to
sustainably lift the poor farmers above the poverty line.
