In all of its glory as our true specialty Flagship coffee, the Guardabarranco (Motmot) flies proudly at the side of The Estate. The Estate is a guiding coffee profile. It brings you what the farmers in the Isabelia & Dariense mountains can do when quality & heritage are real priorities. Nicaragua is known for its delicious chocolate and citrus balance with caramel body, but these true flavors rarely make it into most cups. Prior to export, high-quality specialty coffees have been historically mixed with low quality. That is exactly why we grow & roast The Estate at the source. We have been working with the same family and the same farm since the beginning. Over that time, we have learned this land and the cup continually improves.
Did you know? Chocolaty Nicaraguan coffees grow just a few mountaintops over from real, live chocolate trees! Okay...yes, you are right...chocolate bars are actually made from the Theobroma Cacao tree fruits - not from the dreamy Willy Wonka chocolate trees. In addition to Coffee Arabica, it happens that Nicaragua also grows the most unique indigenous cacaos in the world! Said to be one of the few 'ancestral homes' to cacao, pre-1492, if you know what we mean. Turning cacao into chocolate mirrors the coffee-making process...hand-picking jungle fruits, fermenting, selecting, tasting, and roasting. While we are not sure why The Estate coffee varieties have such a delicious 'cacao' taste, we know that these two plants always leave us wanting more.
