Nicaragua: Edition 22.072 Coffee
Finca Limoncillo is located in Matagalpa and, at 171 hectares in size, it. is. huge! Situated at an amazing location, it boasts nine waterfalls within the farm and is owned by the Mierisch family; as I have already said, they’re good friends, and also well-respected producers in Nicaragua. They’re known for their experimental processing, varietal work, and exceptional coffee.

The overall volume of washed coffees in Central America this year are about 30% lower than normal (due to climate impacts on coffee not ripening well). Nicaragua has been particularly tough for the Mierisch family with access to labour very difficult, and they’ve struggled a lot with lower volumes. As such, we’ve ended up with fewer coffees than normal from Limoncillo and some slight alterations to their usual offerings.

Historically, this lot had always been Caturra but this year it's been moved to Red Catuai and there isn't very much of it : ( as you'll be able to see from the tasting notes we're still getting the caramel, red apple and chocolate notes you've come to love over the years, a delicious tweak to a coffee we've known and loved since 2007.

A very generous serving of caramel dominates the cup, with a gentle red apple acidity providing balance. Milk chocolate comes through as well, adding to just how moreish and quaffable this coffee is.

A home-brewed quality coffee is far less expensive than cafes

...Whilst the purse strings may need to tighten, a better quality home-brewed coffee or tea is still far less expensive than buying individual drinks on the go. Over the last few years, many have taken the opportunity to improve their home brewing skills, and now with the equipment and know-how to recreate that authentic coffee shop experience from home, are enjoying cheaper quality coffees. With cafe coffees costing anything from £2.50-4.00 each, and with a bag of 250g quality coffee costing between £7.00-12.50 and providing you with enough to achieve up to 15-35 brews per bag (depending on brew method and strength preferences), the savings and better quality coffee are both there to be enjoyed.

If this isn't you, there really is no better time to start, and better yet, at GUSTATORY you’ll find plenty of affordable options from our huge range of quality independent roasters and brands from across UK, Europe and North America to support you in doing just that. With it easy to browse and shop for coffee on the marketplace or subscribe to a coffee subscription, it also won't be long until you discover a new favourite. All marketplace purchases are shipped direct for product freshness, with all subscriptions roasted fresh for us as part of our monthly delivery schedules.
