With a classic Central American profile, this coffee is very fragrant, lightly fruity, and has distinct buttery-sugar scent like a sweet roll. Perfect after dinner or for serving to guests.
Served with ice and creamer, this coffee takes on deep chocolate tones. An excellent candidate for serving Vietnamese style with condensed milk. The Medium Roast is well-balanced and naturally sweet and low in acid. The Deep Forest Roast has strong butter and dark chocolate tones.
El Recreo Estate farm is located in a region known as 'The Coffee Triangle', at an altitude of 1,200 meters above sea level. Nicaragua’s northern region is the most fertile in the country, with volcanic soil and luxurious rainforests.
World-class coffee: El Recreo placed in the top 10 in the Rainforest Alliance Cupping Quality contest. We receive the beans unroasted and roast them fresh locally.
8 oz roasted coffee, please select ground or whole bean, and either Medium or Deep Forest Roast.
Love this coffee
This is probably my favorite all-around coffee. It's smooth, rich, deeply flavorful but not bitter (in the medium roast, at least). I drink it with milk, no sweetener. My morning coffee is either this or one of Trung Nguyen's Vietnamese-style coffees--Buon Me Thuot Special, Creative 1 or 2, or the Gourmet Blend.
