This is a coffee that is experimental coffee, maybe the most fun and complex coffees we have this year. Not only is it a Yellow Pacamara varietal, which is quite rare to find and when we do, it always stands out on the tastings with its tropical fruit notes and complexity combined with a creamy big body. On top of that, this Yellow Pacamara is processed as a natural, in a controlled low temperature. I think you can tell that this is a nano-lot, of only 273 kilos. And we sincerely recommend you to try this one.
It is produced at one of the farms we are working closely with, Las Delicias in Nicaragua. We also have the Java processed as natural and washed from here.
The owner and manager of Las Delicias are Eleane Mierisch. Eleane is coming from a well-established coffee family that have several farms in Honduras and Nicaragua that has won several Cup pf Excellence throughout the year. But, Las Delicias is the first one that is Eleane's own farm and this very coffee is just the fourth harvest coming out of there, and Drop Coffee is proud to showcase it to you for the third year. But it is the very first time it has a harvest of the Yellow Pacamara, and here it is!
