October's Grumpy Roaster: La Esperanza (Nicaragua)

| /

October's Coffee of the Month:

La Esperanza

  • Region: San Juan Del Rio Coco, Nicaragua
  • Process: Fully Washed, Sun Dried, SHG, Direct Trade
  • Altitude: 1200 MASL
  • Roast Level: Medium
  • Sensory Notes: Green Pepper, Sweet Grain, Butter

    Some of you may already be familiar with La Esperanza since it has been a part of our Direct Trade lineup for a few years now. For those who aren’t, this is a great opportunity to find out why producer Armando Zeledon is so proud of this lot. You’ll find a mostly sweet, buttery and smooth cup that is typical of Central America, with a nice vegetal hint of green pepper that gives this coffee a nice crisp finish. La Esperanza translates to “the hope” in English and that could not be more apropos because I really hope you’ll give it a try today!!
