Our Organic Nicaragua Finca La Isabelia is produced by a family of multi-generation farmers located in the heart of the Jinotega Department, approximately 9 miles northeast of the department’s capital in the picturesque Cordillera Isabella mountains. The Cordillera range cuts through the center of Jinotega, claiming several peaks, a majority of the country’s hiking trails and a large number of small coffee plantations. The farm takes immense pride in each phase of their production, taking their variety of Caturra trees from cherry to final export. Their soil consists of clay and volcanic ash, and a natural shade canopy provides cover from excessive sun.

Cupping Notes: Crisp, tangy acidity, sweet brown sugar honey aroma with chocolatey notes, well balanced and juicy, exotic flavor with grapefruit, strawberry, raisin, and pomegranate notes with a clean, sweet-fruity aftertaste.

Not only is this my favorite, but it's a best seller for me. I roast on the lighter side, and have beautiful results of a creamy body, hints of berry with each sip. I've had customers with heartburn tell me this coffee has been great for their heartburn problems.

In looing back at my roasting records about 4 years ago this was my highest rated overall coffee - the beans back then were extraordinarily large. I use a freshroast 500 with 115 grams ending up with around 95 grams just touching the second crack & cooling in 2.5 minutes. I've done 6 batches tweeking the roast time/heat level etc. and all I get is an extremely strong dark unpleasant tasting cup. Sorry, but I can't recommend it. WLS

I like very dark roast and bold flavor and do well with the African beans. I wanted to try this because of the good reviews but it's not my style now that I have brewed it a few times. It has the most chaff of any coffee bean I have roasted. Maybe it does better with regular city roast but anything beyond that I find it lacking. It is smooth with complexity but not as bold as I prefer.

My first time trying beans from Nicaragua... I roasted them to 440F, just finished the second crack. Waited 48 hours and brewed them in a French Press.... full body, bold, chocolate notes... These are so yummy that I am tempted to coat them in dark chocolate and eat them as candy! I am ordering more ASAP!

This is a really great coffee at City+ - Full City roast levels. Brewed as a pour over, I got great milk chocolate notes with some orange, citrus acidity as it cooled. The body was the best part. The mouthfeel was creamy and lingered on your tongue.

Roasted just into second crack. Wonderful flavor in my French press. Smooth, “chocolaty”, good balance and mouthfeel.

Working my way through a 5 pound bag and I am really enjoying this bean. I prefer a darker roast and this bean does not disappoint in my brewing method. It really has a nice flavor. I grind 8 ounces at a time and cold brew an elixir that I use over the next few days. 2 ounces of elixir to 6 ounces of hot water so a batch will make about 12 cups of hot coffee. This is the best bean I have tries so far with this method. It also makes a great single cup of grind and brew coffee.

I've been buying 3 varieties for some time now and always make a note to myself that this is my favorite. From now on I'm going to be buying 5 pounds at a time. This is a pretty forgiving bean roasted just into second crack or a bit beyond. Let it set for a day or two and it's good to go. Smooth and full of flavor. The service is excellent too.

Roast just into second crack, cool it, bag it, wait 24 hours, and enjoy. This has become my mantra and I'll return to buy beans here again and again, please don't go away!

This is a good Nicaragua! I roast this coffee to a full city or full city plus . I find it to be smooth and I very much enjoy the different characteristics as the cup cools. This is a surprisingly good coffee .
