These coffees are all proven winners at this point, so let's cut to the chase!
Nicaragua La Esperanza Washed - Sale Price $15.15
Fresh crop Nicas are finally here! And to start off the season, we went with a crowd favorite. La Esperanza is one of Luis' first farms, and this is a selection of only the bourbón coffee variety. This is a very high quality variety, responsible for a flavor profile near and dear to our hearts.
Luis pays premiums to ensure that pickers only select very ripe coffee cherry, which is then floated, depulped, and washed. The Balladarez special touch is a slow, even dry on covered raised beds for upwards of a month's time. This ensures an extremely sweet and clean cup bursting with flavor.
- In the Cup - Expect a crowd pleasing and crushable cup of coffee. We taste apple, honey, and tootsie rolls!!
Ethiopia Abana Estate - Sale Price $15.95
This is the third year we've purchased coffee from Omran family, and we can now say with confidence that we have a genuine relationship with them! Their farm, Abana Estate, is in the Oromia zone of Western Ethiopia, and can be honestly called a social enterprise.
Abana Estate also gives back to the village they are in, using some of their profit to build a community sports field, fund schools, and help fund healthcare for villagers to get the treatments they need. Their commitment is to be a sustainably grown, socially responsible farm that produces high quality coffee.
