Lorenzo has been growing coffee for over 40 years on his farm in the centre of one of Nicaragua's great producing regions, Jinotega. Over the decades he has seen the world of coffee change from the world of commodity, where all coffee was treated the same, to the rise of specialty. Now, as he creates incredibly unique and defined lots, Lorenzo has transformed his coffee into something with heaps of identity and flavour.
This Java lot incredibly captures what can be done. It’s vibrantly refreshing, sweet and complex.
Nicaragua is quite a bit different from its neighbours, Honduras and El Salvador. With generally lower altitudes, coffee there develops quicker. That means, to create a delicious specialty, a lot of shade is needed. Many farms are heavily shaded in forest-like farms, which allow enough sunlight for the coffee plant to grow, but not so much that the cherry will develop too quickly. This means cherries can ripen full of sweetness, allowing the coffee to have its own unique identity.
Organic House Blend was created by blending two organic coffees from Latin America: the Colombian Los Vascos and the Nicaraguan San Juan. Carefully roasted to highlight the coffees’ vibrant and natural flavours, House Blend is a crowd pleasing combination of sweeetness and balance.
Organic Classic Blend was created by blending two coffees from Latin America: the Brazillian Dutra and the Colombian Belen. Combining the intense nut-and-chocolate flavours of the former with the smooth sweetness of the latter, this is a big, bold roast which you won’t soon forget.
Organic Decaf is an easy-to-drink, classic coffee. Decaffeinated using the all-natural sparkling water method, it's made from lots grown in the forests of the West Nile. The coffee cherries here ripen slowly, creating a naturally sweet, complex cup which is incredibly smooth and balanced.
