Variety: Yellow Pacamara

Process: Natural

Drying: Sundried on beds

Elevation: 1315-1400 MASL

Farm: La Huella

Producer: Mierisch Family

Region: Matagalpa

Origin: Nicaragua

Fincas Mierisch began with a legendary tale of a German geologist, Bruno Mierisch Boettiger, being hired by the Nicaraguan government to build their National Railroad in the 1800s. After completion, the government was unable to pay him in full, so they offered land in the high mountains of Matagalpa instead. Bruno never returned home to Germany, but chose to take part in the burgeoning coffee revolution in Nicaragua. Bruno's legacy continues to live on under the care of his great, great grand children. Today the family operates 9 farms in Nicaragua (and 3 in Honduras), and actively participates in the Cup of Excellence, striving for high quality, earning worldwide recognition.

The Yellow Pacamara is a natural mutation of the Red Pacamara (a cross between a Maragogype and Pacas). The family first discovered this yellow maturing varietal on their farm El Limoncillo around 2004, and re-planted some seeds from these initial trees in their other farms as well. This varietal requires more food (fertilizer) than other varieties, about 20% more when compared to a Bourbon or Caturra, and soil that is rich in magnesium, zinc, and potassium (which La Huella is generously endowed with). It is also a varietal that is susceptible to diseases and does not produce a large yield. Despite the challenges, this variety continues to be loved for its great quality cup profile, easy-drinking and naturally sweet.

  • Ethiopia Gesha Village Gaylee Illubabor Forest Natural

       Red Plum, Red Berries, Black Tea

Variety: Illubabor Forest

Process: Natural

Drying: 37 days dried on raised beds, sun and mixed shade

Producer: Gesha Village (owned by Adam Overton, Rachel Samuel, and Willem Boot)

Elevation: 1916 - 1982 masl
Region: South West State, West Omo Zone 
Origin: Ethiopia

Gesha Village is one of the most cherished coffee producers on the planet with 471-hectares in the Bench Maji zone of Ethiopia, nearby the town of Gesha and the Gori Gesha forest, the birthplace of the Gesha variety.

Owned and operated by Adam Overton, Rachel Samuel and Willem Boot, this project was started in 2007 and has quickly developed to be an idolized producer in the specialty coffee world. With ~320 hectares planted of Gesha 1931, Gori Gesha and Illubabor Forest varieties, throughout 8 different zones that correlate with unique terroir.

This lot comes from the Gaylee block, where Gesha Villages water source comes from. This lot is exclusively planted with Illubabor Forest, a variety that was discovered in the nearby areas. This variety is known for its closed knit flavor profile of fruits and spices.

Earlier this year we featured this coffee in a Honey process, loved for its peach-tea flavour and cleanliness, and in contrast, this new lot of Natural process brings about big red fruit character, like biting into a fresh red plum, exploding into little red berries, and backed up by the flavour of black tea.
