Curator's Notes

Finca La Bastilla is nestled in the rolling hills of a picturesque nature reserve. Wander through this cup’s upfront notes of juicy pomelo, and taste as they evolve into a deeper, honeyed sweetness reminiscent of marzipan and dried fruit.

Roaster's Notes

Coffee with a Purpose The La Bastilla Parainema Honey Process coffee is a singular micro-lot and also a coffee with a purpose. The price of this coffee has an added $.15 per pound built in to support La Bastilla Coffee Estate's Education Foundation. The aim of the Foundation is to offer practical education that trains young people in a specific profession: either farming or tourism. Through education La Bastilla hopes to provide a platform to change the community. La Bastilla Coffee Estate La Bastilla Coffee Estate, located in the north-east region of Jinotega, NIcaragua, is renowned for its coffee. Surrounded by the natural reserve Cerro Datanli El Diablo, just a few kilometers from Lago de Apanas, Finca La Bastilla is a tropical paradise for the fauna and flora founded on deep, favorable volcanic soils. Since 2003, the farm has been certified by the Rainforest Alliance and is striving for continued excellence. On its two farms, La Bastilla and Santa Luz, the estate employs around 50 permanent and up to 500 temporary employees during the harvest season. Finca La Bastilla creates opportunities for sustainable lifestyle and income through activities including education at the La Bastilla Agricultural Boarding School, providing on-the-job training for students and hosting an ecolodge for visitors who become part of the farm’s activities. The environment is conserved by maintaining efficient use of river water. To prevent pollution, contaminated water is treated in bio-digesters, producing methane gas. this gas is channeled to the kitchen to be used for cooking. Micro-farms have been created throughout the estate, so that the coffee can express its full potential in accordance with the different microclimates. Each farm is further divided into lots. Lots are differentiated through the micro-farm, but also the variety of the coffee, the altitude and the processing. Overall, La Bastilla produces up to 150 micro-lots coffees! Enjoy this single-varietal honey process Parainema from La Bastilla Coffee Estate. REGION: Jinotega ALTITUDE: 1300-1500 MASL PRODUCER: Hacienda La Bastilla VARIETY: Parainema PROCESSING: Honey

"Very enjoyable coffee! I received a sample and made it as a french press. Could really pick up on the fruity pomegranate notes. Would buy again. Nice light-medium roast. "

"A great coffee! It had a surprising sweetness, but it wasn't too heavy like some sweeter coffees are. Worked great as an espresso too. "
HANNAH 10/16/2021

"Nice and bright and not too acidic. It’s a solid coffee but not. My favorite. You can definitely taste the hint of marzipan in it."
