We just got our hands on a rare and exclusive coffee from the award-winning Mierisch family in Nicaragua for you. You’ll love starting your mornings with this sweet cup of chocolate and raspberry jam. We must admit we were blown away and slightly giddy at the burst of flavor coming from these beans.
Here’s the story. Mierisch is one of the best-known names in Nicaraguan coffee. A coffee-growing family since 1908, they operate 10 farms across Nicaragua’s best growing regions, with their coffees regularly placing in Cup of Excellence competitions. This lot is from the San Jose farm, located on the misty hillsides of Matagalpa (Nicaragua’s capital). This rare bean varietal, Javanica, is this farm’s specialty-- their large beans are packed with flavor and complexity, with a silky chocolate texture and sweet, aromatic fruit flavors. A Javanica from Mierisch won honors in the Cup of Excellence in 2017.
Javanica beans are the true gems of Nicaraguan coffee, and this cup will show you why. A pulped natural process enhances the rich body and sugary fruit flavors. Upon grinding, these beans give out a sweet aroma like strawberry jam. In the cup we taste sweet ripe raspberry within a body of smooth, dark chocolate. This is an extremely limited offering set aside for you so reserve today to get a fresh bag from the only batch.
