Cast Iron Coffee Roasters - Nicaragua - Finca La Cascada - washed caturra

Sorry - Sold out - it's been popular!

Getting product details...

This wonderful Rainforest Alliance coffee supplied to us by Falcon Speciality coffee importers makes a wonderful espresso. Sweet notes of melon, orange lead into a toffee finish. However, we love to drink this as a flat white, when you add milk, not too much mind, a lovely sweet banoffee pie flavour awaits. Try 20g of coffee for a 40g shot to make a 6oz drink. Yummy !
