The plantations are located in the municipality of Buenos Aires, in the department of Nueva Segovia, in the Serra do Dipilto. This is an area known for its speciality coffees. It is located in the northwest corner of the country and is separated from Honduras by the natural border of the Dipilto and Jalapra Cordilleras. This area benefits from an ideal microclimate for growing specialty coffees, which, together with the high altitude, gives the coffee a complex and spicy character.
It is a round and very well-balanced coffee. As an espresso, it is full-bodied and chocolaty; as a filter coffee, it is reminiscent of caramel and plum notes. This region is home to Mount Mogoton, which rises to over 2,100 metres and marks the highest point in Nicaragua. The entire economy of the region depends on grains (corn, beans), coffee, tobacco, livestock and wood production.
This coffee is a blend of 90% Caturra and 10% Maragogype and Maracaturra created by the Dipilto Cooperative in Nicaragua. The cooperative receives the ripe cherries from several small producers in the region and their coffees are blended with the aim of offering a pleasant, consistent and homogeneous cup. Their main goal is to do the necessary groundwork to improve quality in order to build a trusting relationship with their customers.
The coffees are grown on sandy soils at an altitude of between 1,200 and 1,500 metres. Most of the coffee is grown in shade (70% with different species), and the soil and plants are fertilised using environmentally friendly techniques.
Balanced coffee, ideal for espresso.
A full-bodied flavour reminiscent of caramel and chocolate,
with hints of almond and plum.
