Nicaragua Matagalpa Catimor (Arabica) Green Unroasted Beans

Mercedes Farm is located at an elevation of ~3600 feet, in Peñas Blancas within the Isabelia Range, a protected forest area. Lushly green forests surround the coffee trees, and large hardwood trees provide shade and animal habitat throughout the farm. Several beautiful streams flow through the farm and provide natural irrigation, helping to contribute to the plump sweetness of the juicy-ripe beans.

These are THE beans if you like Light Roast or Cold Brew coffees. These are our favorite beans to roast in this range for a lemony, fruity, delicious iced coffee light roast, and go a step darker to City and trade a measure of the citrusy profile for more caramel and buttery tones.

In 2015-2016, the dreaded Coffee Rust (La Rolla) devastated all their coffee trees... except for the Catimor trees, an heirloom variety resistant to the Rust. Catimor had been long overlooked, since the big coffee consortiums aren't interested in buying anything except basic Arabica, but it's an integral part of local coffee cuisine both in Nicaragua and Vietnam. We are so glad farmer Lorena came to us with her Catimor--it is amazing! Help us support this heirloom variety of coffee and together we'll help Lorena rebuild her farm.
