Tasting notes

Honey — Hibiscus  — Milky body 

 

Finca La Esperanza is located in the Dipilto-Jalapa mountain range in a part called La Quisuli Arriba close to the town of Mozonte and one hour from the town of Ocotal. This mountain range in the north of the country (close to border with Honduras) creates a nice environment to grow high-quality coffee.

At La Esperanza coffee grows between 1500 and 1680m in a sandy loam type of soil. Guava trees provide the necessary shade. The coffee from La Esperanza is processed at the neighbouring farm ‘Un Regal de Dios’ which also belongs to the Balladarez family and has a superb wet-mill. We were very impressed by the well-maintained machinery, the spotless fermentation tanks, etc.! All the hard work of the Balladarez family at their farms and dry-mill resulted in winning the Cup of Excellence 2018 (La Bendicion) and 2020 (Un Regal de Dios)!

This nano-lot consists of only 90kg. After 36 hours of fermentation at the farm the coffee was transported to the Beneficio Las Segovias dry-mill where it was dried on African (raised) beds in a huge greenhouse for 35 days. In the cup you find a sweet floral aroma, a medium acidity that is nicely balanced by a honey sweetness (a little spicy too), hibiscus notes, a round slightly milky body and a fine clean and long after-taste.
