Today, we review a real gem of a coffee variety from School Grounds Coffee. This coffee is both quality coffee and a heart-warming purchase. School Grounds Coffee is an award-winning coffee that is produced by the 5 de Junio cooperative in Las Sabanas, Nicaragua from 100% Arabica coffee beans sourced from Nicaragua.
A portion of all sales of School Ground Coffee goes to the Fabretto Children’s Organization, an organization that has been working to improve the lives of children in Nicaragua. A portion of the money spent on this fair trade coffee goes to ensuring that those children have increased access to health care, educational opportunity, and improved nutrition.
Heart-warming and ethical as it is, School Grounds Coffee is also a quality medium roast Nicaraguan coffee.
School Grounds Coffee Beans Cup Experience
School Grounds Coffee hints at the craftsmanship that goes into every bean from the moment you catch a hint of the beans’ mild yet pleasing aroma. Toasty with a light sweetness, the aroma hints at the mild roasting applied to these beans. Grinding them releases an array of aromas that call forward memories of toasted bread and caramelized sugar.
Upon brewing, the aroma is lighter with a smooth, balanced profile and remaining toasted notes. The coffee has a light to medium roast appearance with very light cup cling and pleasant hue. The brew is smooth with a very light body and sweet, clean aftertaste. The overall mouthfeel is light and pleasant, leaving a dry feel balanced with lingering sweetness.
Overall, School Grounds Coffee is an easy to drink brew that is ideal for daily drinking but light enough that it can be overpowered by such strong additions as flavored creamers. A mild sweetening accents the already light, bright, and sweet character of this Nicaraguan coffee.
School Grounds Coffee is ideal for regular coffee consumption or for use in organizational fund raisers due to the ethically positive practices and messages that go into this gourmet coffee bean.
