This Nicaraguan coffee was strictly high grown and is characterized by chocolate undertones, lemon acidity, plum, and honey, for an all around amazing flavor.
Matagalpa is the northern region of Nicaragua that gorws a great deal of typically high-altitude beans. It has an abundance of volcanic soil, as well as a tropical forest climate that makes it ideal for elite growing. 95% of Nicaraguan coffee is considered "shade grown," which is excellent for the enviornment. While coffee is one of the main foreign exports for Nicaragua, they focus on quality rather than quantity, which makes this coffee a truly excellent "Rare Origin!"
