About This Coffee

Variety is the spice of life, and this tropical fruit symphony testifies to that! Don Roger and his wife Isabel farm multiple varietals of coffee on their farm Las Mercedes in Nicaragua and the result is an award-winning coffee with cupping notes of tropical fruits like mango, honey, pineapple, and guava. Doña Isabel lovingly calls this coffee a tutti-fruity!

The varietals blending together in this symphony include Caturra, Bourbon, Pache, Javanica, and Geisha. Don Roger takes pride in his ability to prune trees with special techniques, training his Bourbon to grow in even form next to his plot of Caturra. The Mairena Bourbon and Caturra are mixed 50/50 for a delightful cup with notes of citrus, great acidity, juiciness and delicateness. Their Java is a rare variety adapted from Indonesia that, given the high altitude of the farm, makes for a flavour-packed cup with notes of creaminess, sweetness, good body, and jasmine. Several years ago, Don Roger planted a grove of Pache seeds from Guatemala, which he thinks are a cross between Caturra and another Pache variety.

Now, this coffee is being sought after in Asia, where its diversity and complex flavours set it apart from other single origins.
