Nicaragua Origin Trip 2016

Following on from our great trip to Rwanda last year we sent Matthew (our head roaster) over to Nicaragua to visit the Peralta family and Gold Mountain Coffee Growers. 

We've bought coffee from Peralta via our friends at Falcon Speciality for the past three years and decided it was time we paid them a visit. While over there Matthew was able to visit a variety of farms that are either owned by the family or linked to the family milling operation. They have an impressive list of coffee varietals grown on their farms and these include Catuai, Red Bourbon, Java, Pacamara and a variety of others! They also do an excellent job of showcasing the effect of processing. Over the past few years we've had washed, honey and natural processed coffees from their farms. The honey and natural process tend to be super fruity due to the element of drying with either some or all of the fruit intact.

Part of the reason for visiting was to establish our interest in exclusive lots and to cup and preselect some some coffees for this years shipment. These will be arriving around June/July. 

Here are a few photos from the recent trip:

Smells and Tastes Incredible!

I’ve recently purchased a coffee machine and the advice was to get local coffee — it is usually the freshest. I decided to order the organic blend, and just the bouquet of the beans was enough to wake you up. It smelt incredible; the taste and the freshness exceeded my expectations — and my coffee machine loves them. I make a perfect espresso each morning. I will definitely be purchasing them again as and when needed.

Super fluffy

Fantastic quality grinder, built like a tank, super fluffy output, no static issues.

only flaw re usability is no auto off and touch buttons are not the most responsive so manual grinding is not most accurate

Subtle, very nice coffee

Had this in a coffee shop in Brighton then bought a kilo. It's an absolute belter you won't be disappointed.

A tasty, chocolatey organic blend. Beans have lovely aroma.
