Getting product details...

This is an exclusive small lot and packed with fascinating and complex fruit flavours. Tasting notes: Demerara sweetness, strawberry and bubblegum.
The municipality of San Fernando is located around 24 kilometres from the region’s capital ‘Ocotal’ and of the 10,000 residents; the vast majority are coffee farmers. This beautiful area is home to ‘Samaria’. Situated in the Nueva Segovia region amongst the Comarca Las Camelias community at altitudes ranging from 1320 to 1450 metres above sea level, Samaria embodies a diverse range of luscious vegetation and wildlife brought about by high levels of annual rainfall. Samaria has a total area of nearly 85 hectares which consists of natural mountainous forest. Of the 85 hectares of available arable land, 40 have been set aside for the sole purpose of maintaining and improving the natural habitat. The climate at Samaria is very humid which means the coffee trees are sparsely planted to ensure everything is properly aerated

To decide which plots are to be harvested as micro lots, a brix refractometer is used to measure the sugar content of the cherries across different areas in each farm - this should ideally be around 22 per cent. Once this has taken place, ripe cherries are picked according to the process they will undergo (natural, red honey, yellow honey etc). Then a water siphon is used to select the best quality cherries and separate defect fruits. If the lot is to be a red honey, cherries are pulped leaving all of the mucilage intact. If the lot is to be a yellow honey, the cherries are pulped to remove the skin as well as some of the mucilage before being dried. For the natural processed lots, fully ripe cherries are hand- picked and left to dry with both pulp and mucilage intact for a longer period of time.
