Las Hortensias in the Espresso Subscription
Las Hortensias pleases with delicate jasmine notes and comes with a nice acidity reminding of gooseberries and lime. It has a well balanced, smooth body.
Nueva Segovia borders Honduras to the north and is located within Nicaragua’s Central Highlands. Rugged mountainsreaching 1800 masl alternate with deep. valleys and create numerous microclimates. While the western slopes are dry and protected from the moist winds of the Caribean Sea, the eastern slopes are one of the wettest place in the world. The proximity of Pico Mogotón, an inactive volcano at the border to Honduras, and the Dipilto-Jalapa Mountain Range ensures soil fertility.
Nueva Segovia does not account for much in Nicaragua’s coffee production in terms of volume. But the area has built a strong reputation in producing the best coffee in the country: year in and year out, coffee from Nueva Segovia stands out in every Cup of Excellence competition.
Cafetos de Segovia was founded by Ana and Martha Albir, two sisters who took over their father’s farm – Finca Las Hortensias – in 2014. Producing coffee in a sustainable is crucial to them. They have upgrated their milling facilities toreduce their water and energy consumption, and do not hesitate to advocate the respect of the enviroment to other coffeepartners. Their coffee trees- Maracaturra, Marselleza, Red Catuai and Catimor – grow under native shade trees like Guaba, Bucaro, or Banana. The shade tree technique also provide the soil necessary nutrients and improves ist water-absorption.
