This sparkling, high-grown Nicaragua Java Nica brings a dose of cheer to any breakfast table. Lush aromas open a delicate cup, with a silky body and a rhubarb-like tang that sits on the tip of your tongue. Notes of powdered sugar florals layer with a sweet, muscat grape finish. Clean, aromatic, and oh-so smooth, this light roast is a lovely example of top-quality Nicaraguan coffee.
Washed Java Nica coffees like this one represent the traditional, beloved Nicaraguan profile. A great washed Nicaraguan can rival Ethiopians for layers of florals and light citrus fruits, with a mild acidity and pleasant notes of toasted nuts or vanilla cookies. To source coffees like this one, Zoka Coffee Roasters returns to the award-winning Mierisch farms year after year. A coffee-growing family since 1908, Mierisch operates 10 different farms spread across Nicaragua's best growing regions, and their coffees are regular placeholders in Cup of Excellence competitions. This longstanding, direct relationship has helped this award-winning farm weather the political instability that prevents many Nicaraguan coffees from entering the United States market. We’re proud to give you front row access to this one.
Fresh from the misty mountains of Matagalpa, and one of the most well-known names in Nicaraguan coffee, this delicate cup is a sparkly-sweet reminder of how amazing specialty coffee can be. We love the delicate vanilla sweetness, the touch of tangy summer fruit, the finish like sparkling muscato wine. Reserve a bag of Zoka’s small-lot Nicaraguan Java Nica, and don’t just make toast for breakfast… make a toast to your day!
