Nicaragua, Nueva Segovia – Washed

The region of Nueva Segovia and the hills that surround it are at the border of Honduras and Nicaragua to the north-west. Of all the producing regions in Nicaragua, Nueva Segovia is one of the smallest, but, the quality and diversity of flavour which comes from Segovia is second to none. Nicaragua has been growing coffee commercially for over a century, however, due to political and economic instability, it has been kept out of the specialty coffee spotlight. In recent years, coffee plantations, once taken over during the Nicaraguan Revolution, have been returned to local families, and the industry is looking on track to becoming a real specialty coffee powerhouse.

Nicaragua is the largest Central American country and offers a surprising range of cup profiles based on its numerous micro-climates, and distinctive varietals. Coffee is Nicaragua’s most important agricultural crop, and supports around 15% of the country’s labour force. As improvements in cultivation, traceability, and quality occur, long-term production has been steadily increasing and there is massive potential for Nicaragua’s future production and quality.

About this coffee

This Nicaraguan is really exciting and different with a bunch of soft herbaceous aromatics coming through as it brews. It has a balanced and sweet citric-like acidity with hints of vanilla and a milk chocolate finish. Being a bit more delicate, this has a medium body and tastes absolutely delicious, and caramelly, as a milk beverage.
