Farewell to Nicaragua…
It’s hard to believe that we’re back in Portland. In many ways, this trip to Nicaragua for me and Ken was one of the most important coffee ventures we’ve been on.
Back To Managua
Yesterday, the Nordic Barista Cup travelling roadshow rolled through the north part of Nicaragua. We saw a different climate, much drier, than the other coffee producing regions of the country, and perhaps that climate difference is why so many Cup of Excellence winners come from Nueva Segovia.
Today Was A Good Day
Greetings once again from beautiful Nicaragua. We woke early and packed our bags to check out of Hotel Cafe in time for a training of baristas in Jinotega.
This Is How The World Changes
Once upon a time, this little village in Nicaragua had no phone lines, no internet, and no way to reach the outside world.
NBC Tour Rolls On
Day 2 of the Nordic Barista Cup tour of Nicaragua was another illuminating day at coffee origin. We were lucky enough to tour Roberto’s dry mill, wet mill and his coffee farm.
