Roaster's note on the farm:

Juan Carlos and his wife Aracely live in a small village of farmers who produce both coffee and vegetables at the highest altitudes of Jinotega. His father, José, passed away just after meeting Juan Carlos' baby daughter (Carla) and giving Juan Carlos more land on which to grow coffee. They are keeping up his father's tradition by producing excellent microlots, including incredible naturals.

When you visit their farm, you can hear and may be lucky enough to spot a howler monkey, and you can see tropical birds in the shade trees that shelter their coffee from too much sun.

Juan Carlos and Aracely's coffee meets the tests of highly-critical cuppers from across the world, and we can see by their dedication and attention to detail that they will produce excellent specialty coffee for years to come.   

Brewing Tips:

This coffee is a firm favourite here at the River Roastery, we love it as a V60 but it also makes a fantastic espresso. For V60 we use 20 grams of coffee to 320 grams of water through it over a time of 3 minutes. For espresso we use a 2:1 ratio of 18 grams of coffee in to 36 grams of espresso out in 28 seconds.
