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 peach, tangerine, apple, and pear, it is a perfect fall cup.
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 6 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.
