The Nicaragua La Estrella comes from 126 small scale producers located in the department of Nueva Segovia approximately 150 miles from Nicaragua’s capital, Managua. This region is very close to the border of Honduras and is part of the Cordillera de Dipilto Nature Reserve. The reserve is a place rich with biodiversity of flora and fauna. The name Estrella comes from the Beneficio La Estrella, the coffee wet mill founded in 2013 in Ocotal. Nicaragua La Estrella is comprised of coffee from producers in different municipalities around Nueva Segovia such as Macuelizo, San Fernando, Mozonte and Jalapa.

 

Impact:

Importer/Exporter Caravela installed a wet mill in this region in order to provide a way to process these coffees and thus giving the producers a path to market.

  • Flavor Info

    This year's lot of Nicaragua La Estrella works particularly well as a creamy and sweet shot of espresso with notes of maple and dark chocolate. It also tastes fantastic as a drip coffee as well, with notes of caramel, green apple and toffee when roasted on lighter roast styles and molasses, maple and fudge when roasted darker.
