El Limoncillo it's owned by Dr. Erwin Mierich. The first impression you have of him is that he looks more like a farmer than a doctor. He welcomes us in the spacious complex of his farm.

"While I was living in United States, I worked as a gynaecologist, but then I had to comeback to Nicaragua and lead this farm. Coffee has been my passion since I was a little boy." says the Doctor.

Giving us a rapid tour around the farm, he fluently explains each step of the coffee process: from the sowing, the development of the coffee trees, the picking of the cherry coffee, the wet process, the removing of pulp and the dry process. He also explains all the details there are in order to produce one of the best coffee beans with a great quality from Matagalpa.

My first trip to a growing country was Nicaragua. On this trip I learnt a lot, but I also learnt how Latin America party's (the last night I hasten to add). The two people who taught me how to party were Erwin and Steve Mierisch the sons of this farmer. I found this out only after buying the coffee which was really cool, friends made, are now people we buy coffee from.

What you have heard this before? We do stock a Bourbon/Caturra version of this coffee, and the farm stays the same. but the cup is very different. In the cup the front end is very floral and almost zesty acidity. But thats changes with a flash into big body with a controlled sweetness with a herby parsley hint. The aftertaste is the highlight with huge body and funky overripe fruit. A contrasting coffee, which wont be around for long.
