La Divina, Maragogype

  • The coffee is from the La Divina Providencia farm in the Nueva Segovina region of northern Nicaragua.
  • Farmer Misael Sauceda Olivera plans to use the proceeds of his COE coffee to sustainably expand his farm’s washing stations and improve infrastructure.
  • He currently cultivates mainly the coffee varieties Caturra, yellow catuai and Maragogype on 12 ha of land.
  • The La Divina has a delicate sweetness and acidity.
  • The first sip immediately reminds of green apple and lime.
  • The aftertaste is dominated by aromas of roasted walnuts and caramel sweetness.
  • The creamy floral body completes the coffee experience perfectly!

For me, the winner comes in the cup typical of the country.

Preparation

  • In a Comal, a flat clay bowl, the beans are roasted over the fire and then ground.
  • The powder is placed in a large pot of hot water (no longer boiling!)
  • 3-4 min. later, pour coffee through a cloth and fill it in a pot.
  • The coffee is drunken with lots of sugar

The first week of coffee advent calendar will end with bag 7 tomorrow.
