It has been over a year since we have been able to offer coffee from Nicaragua. Finally, we can enjoy this gem. This coffee has some really interesting and complex notes, yet it is solid and consistent from start to finish. Challenge your nose and palate for this sophisticated, yet very approachable coffee.
The aroma is woody and dense, with some oak. In the cup, it's earthy, oaky, mossy, with a black tea astringency. The clean lingering finish has notes of spice and port wine. This is a coffee for the connoisseur and novice alike.
