Variations in the type of coffee plant grown or the method with which the coffee is dried can dramatically alter flavor characteristics. This genre celebrates the diversity and expressive flavor made possible by these distinctions.
Nicaraguan microlots are a relatively recent addition to the speciality coffee canon — largely thanks to second-generation producers like the Albir sisters. Inheriting their father’s passion, the sisters focused heavily on high-quality, single varietal crops. Dipilto Maracaturra — a natural hybrid of Maragogype and Caturra varietals — is the stunning result of their efforts.
We are tasting grapefruit, orange peel and white wine from Dipilto, with a dark chocolate note completing the cup.
