Direct Trade Nicaraguan Los Placeres Estate – Rainforest Alliance

June 1, 2010

We are pleased to introduce a new Direct Trade Nicaraguan coffee: Los Placeres Estate, which is replacing the Finca Limoncillo Estate, is officially available on our on-line store.

100% Caturra, Honey Prep.  Aromas of caramelized cherries, a delicate butter body, flavors of milk chocolate & pecans with a clean lingering grape acidity. Cupping Score 90.00

Los Placeres Estate is from a different area on the farm, however from the same farmer as Finca Limoncillo.  We have been working with Erwin Mierisch and his family for 3 years now.  They are still dedicated more than ever to quality, evidenced by winning another Cup of Excellence award. This is their 4th year in a row receiving this prestigious award and currently hold the record for the most money received per pound at auction.

  • 2010 – Cup of Excellence Winner – Lot #5
  • 2009 – Cup of Excellence Winner – Lot #7
  • 2008 – Cup of Excellence Winner – Lot #2
  • 2007 – Cup of Excellence Winner – Lot #27

Here is a link from our farm visit with them in January when we visited Nicaragua in order to source this coffee.
