Our feature single origin coffee in August is a true enigma and a stunning coffee, sourced from one of Nicaragua's best growing regions - Nueva Segovia, a place where 6 of the top 10 Cup of Excellence 2018 winners were located.
Nueva Segovia is in the Northern area near the Honduras border and emerging as a key sourcing area for premium quality micro lot coffees.
Farmers in this region are focused on improving the quality and experimenting with advanced processing techniques such as honeyed, naturals and fermentation.
Nicaraguan coffees tend to play in the middle of the spectrum, rarely stepping out the side to shine in glory and unfortunately often passed over by the truly snobbish of coffee enthusiasts.
However, like all origins, there are in fact hidden gems, you just need to keep on hunting for rewards.
Our strategy is simple when evaluating a coffee - look for something unique, distinctive and memorable - search for the unusual and play to it's strengths, regardless of whether it's unfashionable or "on-trend". There is nothing more rewarding than showcasing an origin that's rarely displayed in the spotlight - a Cindarella moment.
Back in October we featured a coffee from Nicaragua, the amazing Dipilto, as our single origin.
At the time, we held a strong opinions this coffee was just the ducks-nuts - it delivered something a little bit different from the traditional cup profile with delicious almond, nougat and ripe cherries wrapped in a smooth, rich dark chocolate coating.
My darling wife Dianne rated it as one of the best cups in the year for a very simple reason - nougat......often talked about, rarely found!.
This month we have a similar coffee from the same producer, displaying a powerful array of sweet flavours - red plum, pineapple and citrus fruits with chocolate, hazelnut and cocoa butter.
A clean, complex, refined and rich coffee to delight the senses with it's long syrupy finish.
Ideally matched with milk-based beverages, this Nicaraguan is our pick for a latte, flat-white or cappuccino.
Don't miss this chance to taste the very best on offer from Nicaragua.
1kg Whole bean packs only. Sorry, no 500g and no ground packs.
Quite the surprise package.
First sips don't reveal it's true potential but take a few more and it's superb flavours infuse a super-sweet and complex cup.
A stunning coffee that delivers in spades.........for a limited time only.
