El Tostón is a blend created from farms in the Dipilto region, in Nicaragua. It is a fully-washed coffee produced using a mix of 90% Caturra and 10% small (grade 16-18) Maragogype and Maracaturra beans. The coffee is named after a typical Nicaraguan dish made using plantain bananas called Tostón, which is a substantial, well-balanced dish, just like this coffee, which would make an excellent base for a blend.
El Tostón coffee is created with the aim of offering a nice solid and homogeneous cup, scoring between 83.5 and 84.5. The Dipilto region’s high altitudealso givesthe coffee an intricate and tangy character. It is a round and very well-balanced coffee. Full-bodied and chocolatey as an espresso, evokingcaramel and chocolate as a filter coffee.
THE TERROIR OF DIPILTO
The Dipilto terroir is located in the production area of Nueva Segovia, which occupies the northwest corner of the country separated from Honduras by the natural border of the Dipilto and Jalapa cordillera.
It is in this region that the Mogoton mountain can be found, which rises to more than 2,100 metres and marks Nicaragua’s highest point. The region’s entire economy depends on cereal (maize, beans), coffee, tobacco, livestock and wood production.
