"El Madrono"

El Madrono AAA is a blend of coffee cultivated by ten producers in the misty mountains of Nicaragua, named after the Nicaraguan tree "Madroño." The Madroño tree blooms from November to February, coinciding with the peak coffee harvest season. Its flowers are richly fragrant and white, reminiscent of coffee tree blossoms. Additionally, these flowers are used in Nicaragua’s unique Catholic celebrations in December. Due to the high risk of quality degradation from humidity in Nicaragua, the drying process is meticulously managed. Initially, the coffee is sun-dried on African beds covered with shade cloths. It is then transferred to three-tier African beds, where it is slowly dried for an additional 14-15 days. During this process, the coffee is moved from the first tier for approximately 5 days, to the second tier for the next 5 days, and finally to the third tier for the last 1-2 days. The coffee is finished with a moisture content of 10-11% and a water activity of 0.5-0.6.

 

This Nicaraguan coffee, with its well-balanced sweetness and acidity, has been finished with a medium roast. It features a sweetness reminiscent of brown sugar and milk chocolate, complemented by a hint of fruitiness similar to ripe apples, resulting in a balanced flavor profile. I particularly enjoy its round and pleasant mouthfeel.
