Nicaragua La Esperanza Mystic Coffee
This is the first of two Nicaraguan coffees that we are showcasing from the magic man Luis Balladarez this year. It's yet another boozy and exciting drop for you to enjoy and is harvested from La Esperanza, his neighbouring farm to Mozonte that you will be able to enjoy soon.
Clean, crisp and complex. This coffee is yet another brilliant example of the direct trade relationship Right Side are building with Luis and is a chance to showcase the experimental natural mystic process they’ve been working on. The cherries are fermented underwater with different resting periods to achieve cleaner and more defined notes. Following this the whole cherries are left on raised African beds under shade to dry for around 25 days.
Trading directly with farmers means that they are properly rewarded for their skill and craftsmanship and it is these relationships that we are looking to grow and develop year on year. It’s also awesome for the farmer to know who’s roasting up their tasty beans on the other side of the world!
Luis’ Finca (Farm) is called ‘La Esperanza’ and can be found in the Dipilto and Jalapa mountain range. It shares a processing mill with his other Finca ‘Un Regalo de Dios’ meaning that they can pool their resources and continually look to improve the quality of their coffee each year.
Luis is the man bringing the energy to this operation, with a real focus on providing opportunities for people in producing coffee, not only economically but also in their day to day lives. The farm is divided into micro lots based on location and coffee varietals which gives us the opportunity to roast these seriously high quality coffees for you.

A home-brewed quality coffee is far less expensive than cafes
Issue: With the continuing economic uncertainty that COVID and the cost-of-living crisis brings, many are tightening the purse strings and choosing cheaper alternatives. However...For more: Comunicaffe International
...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.
