Special Micro Lot :: Nicaragua FTO Esteli, Miraflor Co-OpAugust 18th, 2009 by Mark
We’ve got a very special coffee coming up this week. Did we mention 100% of the profit from this roast is going to a very special cause? We’re doing a limited roast for this on Friday, August 21st. We’ll be roasting up this fine coffee and shipping it out the same day. Expect milk chocolate sweetness, balanced fruit tones of apricot and peach, and balanced acidity. It has a complex yet clean aftertaste, with slight notes of spice (Côtes du Rhône, perhaps?). The nutty taste is pronounced, with piquant filbert & walnut. This makes a delicious french press in the morning. Details to follow, but we’re donating 100% of the proceeds from this roast to a very special villa in Nicaragua for vulnerable children who formerly lived on the dump outside of Managua. Stay tuned and be sure to reserve your bag as we have extremely limited quantities. When I say limited, I mean limited. All those green beans could fit in the back of a Smart Car.
