Nicaragua Don Francisco El Diamante



Vanilla, Custard, Caramelized Sugar

Don Francisco and his wife Blanca Nieve (Snow White) live very high up in the mountains of Jinotega, Nicaragua. They leave a part of their farm in its natural, forest state to protect spring water that bubbles to the surface. They are at such a high altitude that their coffee is harvested a full two months after the rest of the country’s coffee due to the colder climate and increased cloud cover in their farm’s microclimate. The coffee beans’ slow maturity allows them to collect more nutrients, producing more complex cupping notes.

Our importer works especially hard with Don Francisco to provide his family financing, which they have invested into improving their truck so that they can cut down on the amount of time it takes to get coffee from the mountain down into the valley for sun-drying. They have also installed and expanded solar power on their home, improved their roof and workers’ housing, and improved their coffee processing equipment and infrastructure.

All coffee purchases are roasted to order. Orders are shipped on Mondays and Thursdays only.
