LA FINCA LA RUBIA

Today I received a delivery of 65 lbs green coffee from the USA.

I really looked forward to taste the coffee from the farm La Finca La Rubia in Nicaragua.

This coffee is really fair trade. La Finca is a small paradise in the mountains of Nicaragua, an otherwise poor country.

Their workers are decently paid and all profit from the production is spent on sponsoring youth camps at La Finca for poor Nicaraguan teenagers.

Coffee has been grown in Nicaragua since the 1800s and Nicaraguan coffee was widely known as high quality coffee. Tornados, political instability and civil war had a devastating effect on Nicaraguan coffee production. However, today we see a real comeback for high quality coffee from Nicaragua, known for its mild taste with little acidity and aromatic taste of citrus, vanilla and nuts.
