Nicaragua is a fairly new entry into the coffee export world (the late 1800s, which qualifies as “fairly new” in the world of coffee!), and has made quite a splash already. Some experts say that this coffee can give Kona a run for its money, but only time will tell.
The SHG (Strictly High Grown) grade here is especially important, as the highest grown coffees of Nicaragua do not develop the high acidity that is associated with many Central American coffees. This is a very well-balanced cup featuring a mild body, light acidity, and excellent aroma.
