This coffee is creamy and redolent with red fruit like cherries and strawberries.  Look for intense sweetness and mild acidity in this light roast coffee, with caramel undertones.

Dan first visited Nicaragua in 2012, where he met Luis Alberto Ballardez.  Luis Alberto is an awarded coffee farmer from Nueva Segovia, where he has such awards as the "Cup of Excellence" a competition held each year to award the best coffees in Nicaragua.  Luis Alberto is heralded in his community for his generosity, and his attention to detail.  He is a meticulous record keeper, and it shows in both the quality and consistency of his coffees.
