MATAGALPA, Nicaragua – Sajonia Estate Coffee, a Nicaraguan Coffee Exporter, in collaboration with Nicavio, a family-owned green and roasted specialty coffee exporter,  announce the launch of the Golden Attribute Competition. This novel event is set to change the evaluation of Nicaraguan coffee by introducing a new approach that emphasizes distinct flavor profiles.

The “Golden Attribute Competition” introduces a pioneering method to assess coffees, departing from conventional grading practices.

Unlike traditional methods that consider a combination of factors, this competition focuses on evaluating samples based on 10 specific attributes: floral, fruity, caramel, chocolate, citrusy, funky,dairy, alcoholic, nuts, herbal, and spices. This shift in methodology aligns with the evolving preferences of roasters who increasingly seek distinct flavor profiles.

“We are deeply passionate about fostering excellence within the coffee industry,” expressed Manfred Guenkel, General Manager of Sajonia Estate Coffee. “The Golden Attribute Competition represents a unique opportunity to honor the dedication and craftsmanship of our talented producers.”

On March 16th at the Sajonia Mill in Matagalpa, this competition featured over 100 carefully selected producers and farms from the hosts’ extensive roster. The competition showcased exceptional coffees, highlighting a spectrum of processing techniques and flavor profiles.

A panel of 4 renowned coffee experts meticulously judged each entry based on the comprehensive set of criteria centered exclusively on coffee attributes. A select number of coffees were selected and earned the coveted title of Golden Attribute winners.

Very soon, these top 10 exceptional coffees will be available at Nicavio’s booth at the Specialty Coffee Association (SCA) event in Chicago in April. Roasters and coffee enthusiasts will have the exclusive opportunity to pre-order samples of these exquisite coffees, ensuring they can experience the pinnacle of Nicaraguan coffee excellence firsthand.

“We are proud to showcase the exceptional talent and dedication of our producers through the Golden Attribute Competition,” remarked Eduardo Arguello, General Manager of Nicavio. “Through our strong partnerships and direct presence at origin, Nicavio and Sajonia Estate Coffee are committed to delivering unparalleled quality and flavor to our customers.”
