Our Nicaragua Santa Maria Coffee

Santa Maria is one of seven estates that reach across Jinotega and Matagalpa and are owned by Victor Robelo as part of the Las Nubes group. Originally bought in the late nineties after the cessation of action by the Contras, the farms were planted with his fathers’ favourite varietals, Yellow Catuai and Caturra. The Santa Maria farm itself produces mainly Caturra, and under the managerial eye of Jimmy Mierisch is focused on producing high quality lots with new processing methods.

Cherries are handpicked on the farm, before being pulped washed and fermented.

Wet parchment coffee is processed for all Las Nubes’ farms at their own dry mill to maintain quality. For this washed coffee, that means 10 days on shaded raised beds for even drying.

Once dried, it is rested in bags before cleaning, milling, and grading.
