Nicaragua Mierisch Finca Cerro Azul

£8.00

Rounded body and medium acidity with chocolate and caramel flavour notes.

Bordering the Cerro el Diablo cloud forest natural reserve in the Jiguina region of Jinotega is Finca Cerro Azul. Finca Cerro Azul is a relatively small farm of around 33 hectares and is owned by the Mierisch estate and managed by Leonel Ochoa Monje and his family.

Like most farms in this area it sits on wonderful coffee growing land coupled with the combination of daily cloud cover and heavy forest which leads to a very slow maturation of the cherry and therefore a very dense bean.
The farm’s height above sea level varies between 1,100 and 1,400 meters.

The whole process / processing on this farm is very manual, but the family pay attention to detail at every stage. The beans are harvested by hand only when perfectly ripe. All cherries are wet milled on site. The coffee is dry fermented and washed in a span of 24 – 36 hours. The initial drying is done on raised beds and then the parchment is transported to lower elevations for the final sun drying and processing.

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