Nicaragua La Bastilla Estate
Our Nicaraguan coffee from La Bastilla Estates is back! This light bodied coffee offers a slight natural sweetness giving your tastebuds the morning wake up call they deserve!
La Bastilla Coffee Estates, located in the north-east region of Jinotega, Nicaragua, is renowned for its coffee. Surrounded by the natural reserve Cerro Datanli El Diablo, just a few kilometers from Lago de Apanas, Finca La Bastilla is a tropical paradise for the fauna and flora founded on deep, favorable volcanic soils. Since 2003, the farm has been certified by the Rainforest Alliance and is striving for continued excellence. On its two farms, Finca La Bastilla and Finca Santa Luz, the estate employs around 50 permanent and up to 600 temporary employees during the harvest season.
Micro-farms have been created throughout the estate, so that each coffee can express its full potential in accordance with the different microclimates. Each farm is further divided into lots. Lots are differentiated at the micro-farm level, but also by the variety of the coffee and the altitude.
Additionally, La Bastilla owns its own micro-mill. Every coffee is wet-milled and dry-milled with care. Between coffee varieties and its ability to control processing, La Bastilla is capable of producing more than 150 micro-lot coffees, including bespoke offerings upon request.
La Basilla Estate prides themselves to be one of the few (if not the only one) specialty coffee estate companies in Nicaragua with a fully integrated supply chain segment at origin, meaning the estate plants, produces, harvests, processes, classify and market/export all of our green coffee beans directly from the farm to their final destination all around the world. Therefore, we guarantee the quality and traceability of our products.
