NOTE: All of our premium Arabica coffees are roasted to City+ to Full City roasts, showing minimal-to-no surface oils….we want all of the flavor to stay in the beans until the coffee is ground! Despite the additional descriptors, the first flavor and aroma you'll think of is "COFFEE".


Nicaragua Cabo Azul Estate SHG

Country of Origin: Nicaragua
Nicaragua Cabo Azul Estate SHG
TIP: You can save products to your favorites list if you log in
Long-known for abundant production, Nicaragua produces some exceptional specialty coffee, and not surprisingly has an internationally-judged Cup of Excellence growers competition. We currently have, in the Special du Jour Boutique offering, a fine honey-process Javanica varietal from famed Mierisch Estates.
Like in all of Central America, Nicaraguan farmers in the principal growing regions of Nueva Segovia, Jinotega and Matagalpa were hit hard in 2012 by the outbreak of coffee rust disease and recovery took years.
Growers and agronomists knew they had to prepare for a war of sorts. One of the developments was the "creation" of a new varietal called H1 Hybrid or "Centroamericano", which is a hybrid of Sarchimor and the Ethiopian variety called Sudan Rume. H1 is extremely high yielding and resistant to the dreaded rust yet has an excellent cup quality.
Interestingly, the hybrids must be cloned via grafting, as the seeds will not yield a child plant with the same characteristics as the parent. This is very similar to how apple varieties are propagated: planted apple seeds have very little chance of yielding eating apples.

We love this new coffee, and it's super fresh from the recent 2020 harvest period. Complex chocolate, hints of red currant and flavors
perfuse a medium-heavy body in our medium roast.

The infamous coffee-bean cleaning-machine Jacu bird from the Amazon
If your coffee tastes like s--t, don't blame the Jacu bird! This infamous Amazon bean-machine beak-selects each coffee berry at the peak of ripeness and leaves just the beans, somewhat clean and green, behind...so to speak.
"Yirgachefe Harfusa Inkoop? OK, I admit, half the fun of this coffee is the name. I am infatuated with all those exotic vowels. I tried to convince the kids that we should name our new kitten "Yirgachefe Harfusa Inkoop" but they want to call him Tommy. Sigh. Delicious! Full, chocolately entry to the palate but not monolithic, shot through and enlivened with green grass, smoke, and cherries. A very round texture, and clean finish. "
