Segovia Nicaragua coffees are typically well-balanced, with a little more body than a Costa Rican or Guatemalan. The brew has a beautiful nutty-chocolaty aroma, medium acidity, and smooth body. They're pretty beans that roast up evenly.

You'll find that it's good at a wide range of roasts, though you'll lose some sweetness if you take it dark. Go lighter for brighter citrus/less chocolatey qualities. Try it at full-city, to begin with, and see where it takes you.

For our espresso loving friends, this coffee makes a lovely single origin shot! Slightly syrupy and complex, cocoa, a hint of tangy acidity and very subtle nut in the finish. Roast to full city and give it at least 3 days of rest.
