This coffee comes from Finca Las Nubes in the remote Jinotega region, close to the department of Matagalpa. Grown at high altitudes of on volcanic soil surrounded by cool mists this coffee has an enviable reputation, although rarely available we do feel it is worthy of being better known amongst the wider coffee drinking population. These hand-picked cherries are carefully processed in Matagalpa producing a coffee that is almost mild despite the dark roasting and yet is somehow sweet whilst slightly spicy. The grade Supremo is in reference to the large size of the bean, normally listed as AA or screen size 18, what makes this coffee exceptional is the care taken in both the cultivation of the trees and the careful handling of the fruit. The Rainforest Alliance certification is the guarantee of such high quality, and this is an exceptional coffee.
