Swirl - Nicaragua, Light - Medium Roast
Circular pour and watch the patterns Swirl.
Our second of four amazing coffees from Nicaragua, provided by our friends at Gold Mountain Coffee Growers.
Swirl is a Micro-lot coffee from 'Las Mercedes' the farm of Don Roger Mairena & Doña Isabel, located close to the Arenal Nature Reserve in Matagalpa, Nicaragua.
Don Roger has a degree in agronomy and uses this knowledge to produce amazing coffee. The blend of varieties from their farm leads to a very balanced flavour profile. Tropical fruit acidity, with a mild citrus finish, as well as a wonderful mix of malic acidity (think apples and pears) ending with a smooth mouthfeel.
We found roasting this coffee a wonderful challenge, its delicate and lends itself well towards the lighter end of our roasting range.
