• Ometepe Nicaraguan Cold Brew Coffee •
Nicaragua is known for its fully washed coffees. Culturally common in that area, the coffee cherries get fully ripe until they look like “Sangre de Toro” - bull's blood - when Roger proceeds to harvest them. The cherries are then moved to a depulping machine where pulp and seeds are separated without using water. They are then fermented naturally in tanks for a period of 16‐20 hours. Once fermented the coffee is washed several times and then transported 25 kilometers to a drying patio at San Fernando. After 5‐6 days of careful drying the coffee is ready and packed to be sold.

We’ve been doing cold brew by the gallon for a few months now and of all the whole beans and ground blends we’ve had, this is by far our favorite. Hits everything just right, roasty, caramely, not too bitter. It’s also SO convenient that it comes ground and pre-bagged in the filters, and is split between two foil bags for freshness in smaller batches. Good good stuff.
Excellent flavor a true cold brew
