Mogoton - Dipilto
This coffee is a blend created by the Dipilto Cooperative, in Nicaragua, with 90% Caturra and 10% Maragogype and Maracaturra.
The cooperative receives the ripe cherries from several small producers in the region and their coffees are blended with the aim of offering a pleasant, consistent and homogeneous cup. Their main aim is to carry out the necessary groundwork to improve quality, in order to build relationships with their customers built on trust.
The coffees are planted in sandy soil at an altitude of between 1,200 and 1,500 metres. Most of the coffee is grown under shade (70% with various species), and the soil and plants are fertilised using environmentally-friendly techniques.
The plantations are located in the municipality of Buenos Aires,in the department of Nueva Segovia, in the Serra do Dipilto, an area known for its specialty coffees, which occupies the northwest corner of the country, separated from Honduras by the natural border of the Dipilto and Jalapa cordillera. This area benefits from an ideal microclimate for the cultivation of specialty coffees, which added to a high altitude gives coffee an intricate and spicy character. It is a round and very well balanced coffee. Full-bodied and chocolaty as an espresso, evoking caramel and plum notes as a filter coffee.
It is in this region that the Mogoton mountain can be found, which rises to more than 2,100 metres and marks Nicaragua’s highest point.
The region’s entire economy depends on cereal (maize, beans), coffee, tobacco, livestock and wood production.
Tasting notes: A round and very balanced coffee. A full-bodied reminiscent of caramel and chocolate, with hints of almond and plum.
