Featured Coffee -Â Nicaragua Segovia Prodecoop
During a recent trip to Nicaragua, Haden was able to visit several beneficios (processing plants) and see first hand, the various methods used to process coffee. Specifically, how the coffee bean (what we roast) is separated from the fruit, or coffee cherry. While we already knew the business of growing and producing coffee was labor intensive, seeing it first hand gives us a renewed respect for the product and especially, the people.
One of the beneficios Haden visited, PRODECOOP, is located in the Segovia mountains of northwestern Nicaragua and is made up of over 2,300 small-scale farmers. The farmers use shade trees to cultivate the coffee and then the beans are manually harvested. The sun drying and final processing takes place at the coopâ€™s dry mill, Las Segovias.
As you can imagine, a lot of coffee was cupped and slurped on this trip. On one of these cuppings, Haden selected a coffee and was able to purchase it directly from the co-op. This current offering, Nicaraguan Segovia PRODECOOP, is certified shade grown, organic and not only fair trade, but direct trade. We think youâ€™ll enjoy the creamy notes of dark chocolate and almond detected in this coffee.Â PurchaseÂ

What makes a cup of coffee great?
The enigmatic coffee bean is a puzzle to be studied and enjoyed over a lifetime but never solved. The perfect cup of coffee lingers with sense memory - the rich smell ofÂ a familiar coffee house, the touch of a hand, the chill ofÂ an early morning walk, the sun rising over the mountains, and of course the coffee itself; brightly acidic, surprising in its sweetness, bold in its intensity, and ethereal in its complexity. At Red Rooster, we love coffee and we are constantly striving to make your next cup the perfect cup. Luckily, it is a mission that is neverending and always satisfying.
