About the bean

Coffees from Nicaragua always remind us to pause. Is it because they're softer in character than other Central Americans? We do tend to favour these beans during summer and the contemplation and conversation of warm nights - their mild yet complex flavour and full-bodied pleasantness so well suited for slowing with the season (mind you, that's also when we usually order and receive them). But the real test is the cold slap of a winter's morn, and this Nicaraguan from the northern part of the country has what it takes to get a Canadian out the door.

GETTER UPPER

In the cup, this bean delivers body for a bracing day, a bit of sweet (caramel with sass) and a medium bright, very Nicaraguan pleasantness rounded out with citrus tones for a most enjoyable breakfast brew.
