NICARAGUA DON FRANCISCO & BLANCA NIEVE
This fruit-forward coffee, from the high hills of Jinotega, Nicaragua, is grown by one of our long-time farming partners, Don Francisco and his wife, Blanca Nieve. Bursting with natural notes of apricot, tangerine, pomegranate, and pear; this cup helps you savor those last feels of summer.
Because Don Francisco and Blanca Nieve's farm, El Diamante (The Diamond) is located so high in the mountains, it benefits from a longer growing cycle which means their beans have a slower maturity allowing for the development of more complex coffees. In addition, part of their land is a natural forest with a number of fresh, mountain springs used to wash the coffee.
Having brought in their coffee for more than 5 years, we are always impressed by the consistency and quality of what this family grows. This years harvest is fresh, clean and fruity and will delight our long-time customers who look forward to their new harvests as much as we do.
Don Francisco and Blanca Nieve are part of the Gold Mountain Coffee Growers in Nicaragua, a direct trade social enterprise connecting farmers of high-cupping specialty coffee to roasters such as ourselves.
