Nicaragua Finca Pernille

102,00 kr

This coffee is grown in Nueva Segovia on the Finca Pernille farm. Right on the Dipilto y Jalapa mountain range that separates Nicaragua from Honduras. The Arabica beans are processed and dried on the farm before being shipped directly to our roastery. 

"Nicaragua has been a staple origin at Amokka for a long time. Thanks to our long standing relationship with the team at Cafe Nor, we are able to receive fantastic beans directly from farm to roastery. Resulting in a much shorter value-chain and a fresher crop. 

Finca Pernille is a smooth, soft and round coffee with a great nutty and spicy flavours. The citrusy acidity helps balance the coffee resulting in a cup we can drink day in and day out."

'

It was in 1795 that Arabica coffee was first introduced to Nicaragua. Still, it was a rocky start hindered further by earthquakes and hurricanes, as well as civil wars within the country and U.S bans on imports during the cold war. It was not until the late 20th century that the Nicaraguan coffee industry thrived and was able to stand on its own feet, supporting nearly 300 000 workers, and all thanks to its coffee farmers that persisted throughout the disruptions.

Almost 95% of the coffee grown in Nicaragua is high altitude shade-grown. Growing coffee on altitudes between 3600 and 5200 feet above sea level helps it meet the Strictly High Grown coffee specifications, along with a fertile volcanic soil and a favoring climate. Some of the best Arabica coffee varietals are grown in Nicaragua, such as Bourbon, Typica, Catimor, Caturra etc. Many farms are located amongst wild forest and coffee is often grown under the protection of shade trees.
