Roaster’s Notes:

If you’ve been following us in recent months you might know that back in April, we traveled down to Nicaragua to visit our good friend Luis Alberto Balladerez and his renowned dry mill, Beneficio Las Segovias. We have worked with Luis Alberto & BLS for a number of years, and our goal for the trip was to taste coffees from the most recent harvest and connect with a few farmer-friends of ours in the area. When we arrived at Las Segovias on the second day of our trip, Luis Alberto had set up around 15 lots of coffees from his own farm, Finca Un Regalo De Dios, for us to cup. We had the pleasure of featuring one of Luis Alberto’s coffees last year; so we were eager to get one or two of his coffees booked for 2017.

Finca Un Regalo De Dios is located near the town of Mozonte, about 30 minutes from the dry mill. This lot, which was one of our favorites of the bunch, comes from a section of the farm called “La Amistad”. Finca URDD is around 120 acres in size, and is arranged into named sections based on altitude--which ranges from 1500 to 1800 meters above sea level. We found this lot particularly interesting because it is entirely of the pacamara variety. Pacamaras are known for their complex, often herbal and savory notes; and we think this is an exemplary example of a Nicaraguan pacamara.

We were immediately struck by the deliciously savory notes in the coffee’s fragrance and aroma. Green herbs such as basil and oregano are accompanied by red pepper and miso. In the cup, an array of fruit notes accompany the savory flavors. Raspberry, apple and dried cherry pair deliciously with savory tones of oregano, snap pea and a mouthwatering backdrop akin to Chinese dumplings. A smooth, medium body and a tart acidity round out the flavor through a clean finish.
