Nicaragua Los Encuentros

nicaragua-style-2Round body, medium acidity. Baked granny smith apples, snickerdoodle and hazelnut

From the Las Cuchillas community in Jinotega, Nicaragua, on farms begun in the 1940s by Leonardo Valle and continually expanded by his children and grandchildren, this coffee is composed mostly of the caturra variety but also catuai and some pacamara. Picked entirely by hand, the coffee is depulped, fermented for twelve hours and washed. It is then transported to a dry mill in Matagalpa seventy kilometers away, where the climate has conditions to dry coffee properly.

DECAF Blend, Swiss Water Process

ristretto-brazil-decafFull Body, mild acidity. Sweet butter, truffles, baked apples

A wonderfully well-rounded decaf! This Brazil-based blend pulls a rich and syrupy shot
of espresso that can be hard to come by in decaffeinated coffees.

Swiss water process uses a patented method that is chemical-free to decaffeinate green coffee. Green coffee is soaked in hot water, releasing caffeine. When all of the caffeine and coffee solids are released into the water, the beans are removed and the water is passed through a carbon filter, which allows the coffee solids to pass through, but catches the caffeine.
