Nicaragua Dipilto Finca La Laguna

Nicaragua Dipilto Finca La Laguna


This is our first offer from Nicaragua. Dipilto is a premier coffee growing region, with diverse micro-climates and good altitude, optimal conditions for producing specialty coffees. Finca La Laguna is operated by producer Luis Emilio Valladarez, and the farm is situated at 1100-1350 meters. Natural shade trees abound, the coffee is protected from warm afternoon sun. This is a naturally processed lot, and drying takes roughly 4 weeks to complete before moving to the hulling machinery. This long dry time inside the whole cherry adds a fruitiness to the cup.

La Laguna shows a very "Brazil-like" hazelnut and chocolate scent in the dry grounds. Cup flavors go from chocolate cookies to cinnamon/sugar toast to roasted barley.

This coffee is part of the 'Farm Gate' program from our friends at The Coffee Shrub, which means they have negotiated directly with the farmer, and guarantee prices that are at least 50%, and often more than 100%, over fair trade.
