Finca Idealista, run by Gold Mountain Coffee Growers, sits atop a Nicaraguan mountain bordering a nature reserve whose trees act as natural air conditioning for the estate. Featuring the Pacas and Caturra varieties, the lots here benefit from a cool microclimate that lengthens the maturity process of the coffee cherries, allowing beans more time to absorb natural sugars and other attributes that contribute to a rounded cup profile.

Local pickers are trained to pick only the reddest cherries, ensuring each crop reaches its full potential with the highest level of sweetness. The estate uses a honey process that is on the black honey end of the spectrum with a particular focus on the preservation of mucilage. This results in more complex and clear fruit cupping notes. You’ll be able to discern a distinctly tropical profile with fragrantly delicious notes of berries and dark chocolate backed up by hints of citrus and a subtle floral accent.
