After the first sip of this distinct and delicious microlot you will know you are drinking a superb cup of coffee. We offer this in a medium roast to allow the sweet layers of milk chocolate, a slight nuttiness and hints of green apple that have your tastebuds doing the Toro Huaco in your mouth (traditional Nicaraguan dance).
Because of the nature of microlot coffee and the small farms where they are grown and harvested, this is a very limited batch.
Part of the proceeds from this coffee goes directly to the La Bastilla Coffee Estate's Education Foundation. This foundation offers practical education that trains younger generations of the Jinotega/Matagalpa regions with specific professions in farming or tourism to provide a platform to change the community.
La Bastilla Coffee Estate
La Bastilla Coffee Estate, 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, La Bastilla and Santa Luz, the estate employs around 50 permanent and up to 500 temporary employees during the harvest season.
Finca La Bastilla creates opportunities for sustainable lifestyle and income through activities including education at the La Bastilla Agricultural Boarding School, providing on-the-job training for students and hosting an ecolodge for visitors who become part of the farm’s activities. The environment is conserved by maintaining efficient use of river water. To prevent pollution, contaminated water is treated in bio-digesters, producing methane gas. this gas is channeled to the kitchen to be used for cooking.
Micro-farms have been created throughout the estate, so that the coffee can express its full potential in accordance with the different microclimates. Each farm is further divided into lots. Lots are differentiated through the micro-farm, but also the variety of the coffee, the altitude and the processing. Overall, La Bastilla produces up to 150 micro-lots coffees!
