Carabello Coffee

Nicaragua El Ganador Honey


Luis Alberto won the cup of excellence with this microlot of coffee back in 2011, and renamed the lot "El Ganador" meaning, the winner. This is a meaningful lot of coffee for us, because this micro-lot inspired the write up of Luis Alberto Balladarez that Justin Carabello read before his first trip to Nicaragua.

When in Nicaragua, Justin talked to Carlos about it, the man who runs the orphanage he came to visit- who exclaimed, "I know that man! He's my friend!" and the rest is history. We love to buy this lot of coffee because it is always exquisite and it is the starting point for our friendship with Luis Alberto Balladarez.

In the Cup
