Finca Acopio Suyatal comes to us from Dipilto, a region within the larger Nueva Segovia Department. Nueva Segovia sits along the northern border of Nicaragua, very close to Honduras, and offers some of the most ideal climatic regions for coffee production in Nicaragua. At 1500 meters, Acopio Suyatal is one of the highest altitude farms of the small suite of estates run by Cafetalera Buenos Aires. The farm is roughly 10 manzanas in size and planted in mostly Caturra with some Maragogype shrubs peppered throughout. This Caturra separation from the farm represents coffee selected from the main part of the 2019 harvest. The coffee is fully washed at the Buenos Aires wet mill, then trucked down to Ocotal where it is dry milled using state of the art equipment at Buenos Aires' dry milling facility. 

Building nice core coffee flavors in Suyatal is simple and I recommend starting at City+. Middle roasts harness straight forward sweet-to-bittering tones and a really nice daily drinking coffee. The dry fragrance has mild sweetness like marzipan and raw sugars, chocolate covered almond. The cup is balanced, clean and with apple-like vibrance albeit on the softer side. Both City+ and Full City roast showed complex layers of bittersweet cocoa and brown sugar, a hazelnut accent and walnut finishing flavor. Flavors in dark roasts have chocolate walnut brownie appeal. All-in-all, middle to mid-dark roasts of Suyatal brew really well, our Full City roast made for a first-rate, single origin espresso. Ristretto shots have deep chocolate flavors from front to finish and make a delicious cappuccino!
