Nicaragua El Ganador
It's back! This micro-lot from Luis' farm Un Regalo De Dios is an annual favorite of ours, and we think it tastes better than ever this year. El Ganador is aptly named for being the lot of coffee that won the cup of excellence back in 2011, and broke the story that introduced Justin Carabello to Luis Alberto and his big heart. That year and onward, he is committed to donating his winnings from the Cup of Excellence into efforts providing homes for families in need in his community. This particular lot is a variety separation of Maracaturra, a hybrid between a mutation of typica called "maragogype" and a mutation of bourbon called "caturra", together they create a coffee that is a much larger than usual seed size and very excellent cup quality. This was a washed lot, the processing method creates tons of sweet and balanced fruit and citrus flavors and a great mouthfeel.
