Nicaragua Blueberry Candy

Origins & Varieties


Capture

This is a truly exceptional coffee from the El Peñón micro-farm on the estate which has optimum soil and altitude for the Red Catuai varietal. The amazing taste comes from the cherries being hand-picked when very ripe then slowly and carefully dried at a low temperature. Of all the microlots, Blueberry Candy is most difficult and time consuming to process but the end result speaks for itself.
