We are proud to have been working with Olman Sauceda for well over 5 years. His three farms in the mountains near Dipilto in northern Nicaragua (1300–1650m) produce several different lots depending on the section of the farms. In these sections of the farms, he grows many different varieties of coffee including caturra, gesha, parainema, catuai, and maracaturra, among others.
Several fruit trees are prevalent throughout the farms, including banana, plantain, and several varieties of citrus. Malangas (similar to yucca or taro) are also common.
This year, we’ve purchased 5 different lots of his coffees, three will be offered as single-origin coffees, while the other two will anchor our blends.
Our first two releases of this trio will be a natural processed coffee from Finca Elite, and a washed Maracaturra variety from Finca Pinavete.
This beautiful sun dried catuai jumped off the cupping table at us with a lovely initial burst of raspberry, followed by the one-of-a-kind flavor of those Chocolate Oranges you sometimes find around the holidays. A creamy mouthfeel brings a delightful harmony to the flavors, making this coffee a real knockout and delectable powerhouse.
Thanks Olman for growing and producing this delicious and unique coffee!
