    The Art of Production
    This coffee is a natural process. Coffee is selected and harvested then laid out to dry In cherry for a total of 28 days, 22 days on outdoor raised beds and 6 days undercover. The coffee is turned regularly throughout the day and covered at night to protect from moisture. This coffee is processed at the San Ignacio Mill in Mozonte, near Ocatal in Nueva Segovia. The mill manager Mayerling Escoto has specific responsibility for all the processing at this microlot-only mill.

    The Region
    The San Ignacio farm is situated in the Dipilto, Nueva Segovia Region of Nicaragua, close to the Honduras border. The farm is nestled within lush dense forest and rolling hills, making this prime specialty coffee country. Nicaragua has a long history with coffee but over the past few years has become increasingly well known for top specialty coffee, due to th einfluence of producers like Julio and Octavio.

    The Producers
    The Peralta Family coffee growing history goes back to the beginning of the 20th century, but it was only in 2008 that they started focusing on developing new ways to market their coffees to international specialty coffee markets. We are privileged to have known the Peraltas for several years and admire the attitude and values that have led to top specialty preperations. We are delighted to bring their microlots and special preperations to Europe.

This year we won a Great Taste Award and are a National Finalist in the Rural Business Awards
