Our Nicaraguan coffee comes in dark and medium roasts, both of which have the traditional flavors of many Central American coffees—chocolate and citrus with a pleasant undercurrent of mild tobacco. With mild acidity, a slightly crisp front end, and a creamy body, this coffee offers a balanced cup that contains just a hint of almond. It is grown at an average elevation of 1200 meters, which leads to a denser, higher quality bean.
This coffee is both organic and fair trade. It is sourced from a cooperative of small farmers (30% of which are women) in the mountains of northern Nicaragua that works to improve farming practices to produce a higher quality product. Educational programs and economic diversification funding opportunities are offered through the cooperative, along with research in developing strategies for combating gender inequality and crop security.Also Available As A Subscription
