A beautiful medium bodied organic & Fair Trade coffee with a sweet honey finish. Carefully roasted to bring out the delicious sweet almond notes throughout.

These beautiful Nicaraguan coffee beans have been organically grown and harvested by independent smallholders in Jinotega. This is a medium bodied, sweet coffee that has been carefully roasted to bring out the delicious almond notes.

Nicaragua started growing coffee in the middle of the 19 century, when some students brought seeds from a trip in Guatemala, since then the coffee started spreading in the country. In the beginning, the coffee was cultivated only in the Pacific region, but with the time and thanks to Danish, German and Italian emigrants, whose originally intention was to make their way north until California in order to look for gold, the coffee industry expanded the coffee cultivation into the Northern and Central regions. Coffee production was diminished during the civil war of 1980.

Nicaragua grows mainly the varietals of Caturra, Bourbon, Maragogype, Typica and Catuaí, and the main growing regions are located in the south, north and centre. In the south region the departments of Managua, located between the Xolotlán lake and the pacific ocean, Carazao and Masayo are the main producers, while in the north and centre the main producing departments are: Matagalpa, and representing 1⁄4 of the areas designated for coffee growing,

Jinotega, Nueva Segovia, Madriz, Boasa and Chinadega.

    I have loved their coffee and this business since I bought my first cup of coffee; two years ago.

    I was on a day trip doing photography and found their coffee shop just outside Shrewsbury railway station.

    Since that day, I’ve tried many of their coffees (not all yet), my personal favourite is the “Nicaraguan” roast. I’m no good explaining the different tastes with coffees, I just know that if I like it. I LIKE IT!. I just find this one very easy to enjoy, especially as a latte. Just a delicious taste.

    This company has meant more to me than just a supplier of coffee, they’re good friends too. I would always contact Ryan to ask about other coffees I could try and he’s been spot on everytime.

    I love this coffee. Has a nice malty taste when paired with milk. Lovely and sweet.

    I tried this after trying Colombian Jazz because I wanted to try another South American coffee in the range. It is a really rich coffee with hints of caramel and honey. Even better that its organic. I would order again.

    The Nicaraguan coffee is seriously a treat for the senses. It’s got this rich, bold flavour with a subtle hint of honey which goes down so smoothly. Plus, I love the fact that it’s organic and ethically sourced. I’ll definitely be ordering more. Highly recommend!
