Foundry Coffee Roasters - Santa Maria De Lourdes: Nicaragua

Sorry - Sold out - it's been popular!

Getting product details...

This is an exclusive coffee to Foundry Coffee roasters and it forms part of an experimental approach taken by the owners of this well known farm, where different processing methods have been used to prepare the coffee.

From Foundry Coffee Roasters:

This particular lot is limited to a few hundred kilos and the coffee is ‘red honey’ processed. This means that 100% of the mucilage is retained during the drying process, which in this case took 14 days. The result is something that ends up tasting like something between a natural and a washed coffee. In the cup, this bean is all about the black treacle and molasses and an incredibly silky mouthfeel. It’s well balanced and has good complexity whilst somehow managing to be an unusual hybrid of fairly traditional and yet pretty funky at the same time!

From Lee @ Foundry Coffee Roasters: We are delighted to bring you this wonderful Kenyan coffee. Except to be reminded of grapefruits, brown sugar and fresh berries.
