I first visited Nicaragua in 2002 and discovered the Segovia region produces some of the sweetest coffee in Central America. Despite considerable political and developmental challenges, Segovia has delivered us large, dense and flavorful coffees for over 15 years. One of my favorite things about visiting Nicaragua coffee regions is the people — they are resilient and positive despite having faced a very conflict-ridden past. As coffee farmers, they are early adopters and very good at producing high quality organic and fair-trade beans. The expansive patios in sun-drenched valleys allow the sweetness of the coffee beans to come through.
