Description: La Bastilla Coffee Estate, located in the north-east region of Jinotega, NIcaragua, is renowned for its coffee. Surrounded by the natural reserve Cerro Datanli El Diablo, just a few kilometers from Lago de Apanas, Finca La Bastilla is a tropical paradise for the fauna and flora founded on deep, favorable volcanic soils. Micro-farms have been created throughout the estate, so that the coffee can express its full potential in accordance with the different microclimates. Each farm is further divided into lots. Lots are differentiated through the micro-farm, but also the variety of the coffee, the altitude and the processing. All of this really shows through in this subtly complex cup. On the front end, you pick up notes of plum wine and sweet blackberry juice. Soon after, these notes meld with notes of strawberry and juicy grape hard candy. The body is light medium, accompanied by a floral note of chamomile and a creamy mouthfeel. The finish is very smooth, with a note of toasted cane sugar that lingers pleasantly on the palate.
Shelf Life: An unopened bag will remain tasty for five months due to our processes and packaging. We remove most of the oxygen from each bag during our packaging process and replace it with food-grade nitrogen to lovingly cradle these precious beans for a long time. We use the highest quality bags with one-way valves to retain the low-oxygen environment we create and allow our coffee to off-gas naturally.
