Our Nicaragua SHG EP is a coffee that comes from the mountainous northwest region of Nicaragua. It is a Strictly High Grown coffee, meaning that the coffee was grown at high altitudes, which allows the bean to develop slower, resulting in a denser high quality bean.
In addition, EP stands for European Preparation - a further sorting of the green coffee before it is exported, so only the finest green beans are bagged and exported. Our Nicaraguan coffee is harvested and exported from Asociacion Aldea Global.
Aldea Global began in 1992 with 22 farmers. Today, the Association assists over 1000 families, most of which are Chorotega Indigenous Communities. Aldea Global offers organic specialty coffees, which have provided the association with small farm loans, women's solidarity groups and the ability to produce other agriculture products such as fresh produce and beans.
The association promotes sustainable management of natural resources, rural health clinics, installation of potable water filters and integrated pest management programs. The Association of small farmers facilitates the growth of profitable and sustainable businesses, promoting efficient commercialisation and alternative credit services. Aldea Global helps farmers stay in harmony with their environment, while producing a profitable product for the marketplace.
We’ve been searching for a long time to find good coffee, ideally locally roasted and it’s been great trying different flavours (the taster pack is a great start). I use oat milk so it’s important to find something that works well with that.
Great coffee will buy again. Good blended 50/50 with OBJ.
Lovely smell of coffee. The web says caramel flavour, but we think it is a mixture of caramel and chocolate flavour.
I liked this coffee. Fairly rich and fairly smooth. I’d prefer a little richer and just a tad smoother, otherwise I’d have scored it a 5
Good overall. I was attracted by the freshness of your roasting but, of the 4 coffees of yours that I’ve tried, this is the best so far.
