Nicaragua Nueva Segovia Maragogype
Nicaraguans typify the characteristics of Central American coffees. Its rich volcanic soils produce coffee that is fragrant, complex, moderately acidic (Jinotega and Segovia coffees are often bolder in this regard, however), with a nut and vanilla bouquet and a medium body. Coffee is one of Nicaragua’s major sources of foreign exchange and it provides the economic backbone for thousands of rural communities. More than 45,000 coffee farm families cultivate coffee in a way that preserves Nicaragua’s precious forests and threatened biodiversity. Most Nicaraguan coffee is shade grown.
The Maragogype (pronounced mar-rah-go-jeepeh) or “elephant bean” as it often called is a variety of Arabica known for its size. It is almost double the size of Arabica Typica and was originally identified in Brazil. The leaves of the coffee plant are large and the yield is low, but the cherries are big enough to compensate for this.
