This is our first year working with the Mierisch Family in Nicaragua. We are incredibly excited that we have been introduced to them, as this limited crop is our favorite purchase of the year. The Miersch Family consistently places in the Cup of Excellence. In laymen terms: the world agrees that this coffee is phenomenal. This Laurina coffee is extremely complex, has a nice milky body, tea like acidity, and a boat load of strawberry acidity. But, we haven’t shared the most exciting part of this coffee. It’s naturally “de-caffeinated.” When you buy decaf coffee, it has gone through some sort of chemical process to strip away 90% of the caffeine content. This leads to off flavors that make decaffeinated coffee taste extremely different from a regular coffee. This coffee had no such process. The Laurina variety is an incredibly rare, difficult, beautiful coffee to harvest. Why? It has virtually no caffeine. As a result, no odd chemical processes take place. On a cupping table, it tastes like a deliciously normal caffeinated coffee without the buzz. This means that non caffeine drinkers alongside coffee drinkers who want something to drink at night can both share coffee from the same bag. Even better, we are the only roastery in the world to offer this coffee.
Their farm, Las Delicias, is constantly pushing the boundaries as to what you should expect from Nicaragua. We are humbled and excited for you to have the opportunity to taste their hard work.
