Nicaragua Cerro de La Explosión

£8.30

Cooked brown sugar, monkey peanut and caramel.

Grerat name for this coffee - ‘Cerro de La Explosión’ (Explosion Hill) but the actual name of the farm is Finca Flor Silvestre.

So why Cerro de La Explosión? - well the farm had previously been a mine camp for rebel forces. Well located and intriguingly named by its owner Roger Esau Herrera Ortez.

When the farm was founded in 1997, Roger was considered something of a maverick, as he was the first coffee farmer to be planting coffee trees in such a difficult place to produce coffee.

It requires a lot of effort and patience and growth of the trees is slow, taking up to 4 years to reach full production. Yields are also low – with only 7-12 quintales per manzana (.70 hectares). To give you a comparision other areas of Nicaragua produce an average of about 40 quintales per manzana

All our coffee is sold as whole beans, which we recommend for optimum flavour and freshness.
