Organic Fairtrade Whole Coffee Beans - 12oz
This delightful fair trade organic coffee is grown at approximately 5,000 feet in the lush Esteli Department (state), near Nicaragua's northern border with Honduras. The beans undergo a gentle medium roast to optimize the distinctive flavor notes of sweet caramel apple and roasted nuts in this clean, bright coffee.
Nicaragua "Miraflor" is sourced from family-owned farms organized around Promotora de Desarrollo Cooperativo de Las Segovias (PRODECOOP). Two small primary cooperatives, Jose Benito Diaz (21 members) and Vicente Talabera (36 members), cultivate, harvest and process this specific coffee at farm level micro-mills.
This distinctive coffee is named after the nearby Miraflor Natural Reserve, which contains more than 200 species of orchids, growing in both the forest canopy and on the forest floor. The reserve is also home to over 200 species of birds, including the national bird of Nicaragua, the guardabarranco (turquoise-browed motmot).
