Tasting Notes

Nicaragua sits in the conservative, sensible middle.

Without venturing too far in any direction, Nicaragua coffees are certainly well prepared, clean and tasty without any exotic fruit driven outcomes.

But that does not make them boring or mundane.

Plenty of toffee, caramel and milk chocolate. Lots of sweetness, refined and controlled acidity.

A really safe choice if you are new to single origin coffees.

Cup Attributes

Body : full and rich

Aroma : toasted caramel, vanilla

Acidity : medium and refined

Flavor : noughat and toffee abound


A classic coffee flavour

Nicaraguan coffees repeatedly show us how reliable and consistent they are at delivering a "classic" coffee experience.

Many Nicaraguan coffee farmers are conservative, preparing coffees with fastidious care and consistency using the same trusted traditional methods.

This makes a Nicraraguan Single Origin coffee an excellent choice if you are seeking that classic coffee flavour in the cup.

So, what can you expect from Nicaraguan coffee?

One common attribute in Nicaraguan coffees has been delicious levels of nougat and toffee.

Now, nougat in a coffee is pretty damn special if you ask us.

It's sweet without being fruity or ferment-driven sugary.

Nicaraguan coffees also generate plenty of body with that long, rewarding finish.

Hard, dense coffee beans are Nicaragua's staple, so it's no wonder they deliver solid flavours with muted acids.

If you like a well-rounded, clean, classic coffee, our Nicaragua seasonal micro lot coffee is just for you.

Tips - Nicaragua can be an interesting coffee to dial in.
A bit larger, harder and denser beans you would tend to shift the grinder a bit finer.
Then there is dosing. Sure they are high altitude and similar to Honduras, Guatemala and Costa Rica, but in our experience, we tend to treat Nicaragua coffees as even harder and denser, so that means we take a slightly finer grind setting.
In the extraction, the black coffee might appear acidic with some nutty and black currant notes.
For milk or alternative dairy, that can work well.
But for black lovers, the Nicaraguan presents some challenges and for this reason, we would direct you (or recommend) a different coffee such as an Ethiopian or Sumatran.

How we roast your coffees

light, medium or dark

Each coffee in our store has a unique roast profile carefully engineered and continuously updated to achieve the best balance of flavor, body, complexity, acidity, sweetness and finish.

It's a never-ending process with new lots arriving almost weekly along with the constantly changing Melbourne weather conditions.

We don't use light, medium or dark as our guide. That's so outdated and quite frankly inaccurate with around 20 shades each of light, medium and dark.

The external or outside color is never a true indicator of a coffee's cup attributes (or performance).

In other words, coffee can appear dark outside but have under-developed internals (sour, flat, weak, thin, etc.) if it was roasted poorly.

Similarly, a light exterior can easily mask or hide internal scorching or invalid roasting profile.

The target for all of our coffees (excluding specific filter roast products that are intentionally roasted lighter) is medium.

Think cafe style and coffee that is best suitable for espresso or traditional brewing devices.

What's critically important to us is that we extract maximum goodness for you to enjoy.

After 20 years and hundreds of thousands of batches, we think our Tier 1 infrastructure, skills and experience surpass the market.

did you know about

Ground coffee

Ground coffee will lose around 80% of essential vitality after 15 minutes oxygen exposure. Even ground coffee inside of a sealed, unopened bag will stale considerably within 2 weeks.

Some brewing applications, such as espresso, require roasted coffee in peak freshness to produce a delicious extraction. Other brew methods are less sensitive to the impact of staling coffee.

To ensure freshness, we never hold, store or manufacture any ground coffees. All our coffees are packed as whole beans within 1hr of roasting to lock in freshness.

When a customer orders ground coffee, we take fresh roasted beans, cut the seal, grind, clean and re-seal within 60 seconds. All at the moment your order is packed for dispatch.

We recommend for the best coffee experience to consider purchasing whole beans and grind only enough to brew just moments beforehand.

    A very smooth coffee with a caramel undertone and low acidity, as described. Not completely to my taste as I prefer greater intensity, but I just had to try it in the hope that it would provide both low acidity and high intensity, which is admittedly difficult to achieve. A worthy coffee, nonetheless!

    A good coffee with medium strength.

    Nice cup with a balanced acidity. Prefer something a bit stronger next time.

    Wife and I were surprised at how good this coffee tasted. Never had coffee from Nicragua before and will certainly buy again.

    Perhaps the best in store.

    This is our 4th time coming back to Nicaragua coffee. Just has that something special to it that other coffees lack.
