This Nicaragua is from the region of Segovia. It's a sweet, full-toned and fruity, with a bright acidity. We find chocolate notes throughout the cup, and a complex finish.
The Promotora de Desarollo Cooperativo de Las Segovias (PRODECOOP) co-op has been producing high quality beans since 1993. The farms are located in the Segovia mountains of northwestern Nicaragua, an area that includes the departments of Madriz, Nueva Segovia and Esteli. The coffees produced in these areas are cultivated under shade trees, and the beans are manually harvested.
PRODECOOP carefully supervises all phases of the coffee production and processing in order to ensure strict quality control. The coop has spent the last few years identifying and marketing the coop's best coffees in order to improve the economic status of all the farmers.
Through the Fair Trade market, they have been able to make outstanding strides in the community by sending children to primary and secondary school, funding the rebuilding of members' houses, and participating in food aid programs.
