Nicaragua Nueva Segovia Buena Vista
Roger Esaú Herrera Ortéz and his family of seven are growing some of the finest coffee in Nicaragua. Their farm, Buena Vista, is on the Cerro de la Explosion in San Fernando de Nueva Segovia, grow a mixture of mostly Caturra and Catuaí variety coffee under the shade of liquidambar, pine, and rambutan. Buena Vista is also home to a number of animals, including armadillos, quetzals, and wild cats like oncillas and jaguarundis. The coffee is pulped, fermented, and washed on the farm before it is transferred to Beneficio La Estrella, in nearby Ocotal, to be dried and prepared for export. Buena Vista has a nougaty body and flavors of mixed berry, and a nice floral finish.
