Nicaragua Finca Buenos Aires Caturra

This “crowd pleasing” mild bean combines the simple flavors of raw cane sugar, brown sugar and vanilla with the more complex flavors of roasted nuts and dried apple. These flavors are complimented by notes of cocoa powder, which creates a beautifully balanced fragrance, mild tea-like acidity and bittersweet finish which makes it best served as a medium roast.

Due to the high level of maintenance of the Caturra bean, it is cultivated in areas averaging 4,920 feet above sea level. The Luis Emilio Valladarez family has been growing coffee on their farm in Nueve Segovia in Nicaragua for over 55 years. Their coffee farms are located between the Dipilto and Jalapa mountain ranges. Good soil conditions in terms of texture, moisture and fertility are characteristics that facilitate an excellent productivity of high quality coffee.

The coffee is sun dried on patios or African raised drying beds that keep the cherries off the ground, allowing for proper air circulation.

Finca Buenos Aires is a large farm in the Jinotega growing region of Nicaragua. This coffee bean is from the Caturra varietal, which is a cultivated mutation of Bourbon that occurred in Brazil in the mid 1930’s, but planted in South and Central America mostly in the 1950’s. Buenos Aires is a rather low farm with this coffee growing at about 1200 meters above sea level. The Buenos Aires Caturra has a mild dry fragrance, with raw sugar and rusted nut smells, with dry accents. With a medium roast level, this coffee bean has a finish of Dutch cocoa powder and nut and dried apple flavors. This Caturra is a “crowd pleaser” that provides a balanced cup with a clean mouth feel.
Another American continent bean that our customers enjoy is the Guatemala Finca El Rincon.
