Nicaragua | Finca Idealista, Matagalpa
Cup characteristics: Toffee Apple, Mango, Mandarine
Finca Idealista is the flagship farm of Gold Mountain Coffee Growers. It is a prime example of how coffee can contribute to making a positive impact on the environment. This coffee has aromas of toffee apple, mandarine, and mango.
Head producer Ben Weiner uses machetes and a type of mushroom instead of pesticides to mitigate pests on his Rainforest Alliance farm. He has invested heavily in protecting the nature reserve around him by purchasing rainforest and volcanic filters to treat his water waste runoff. This coffee is on the black honey end of the spectrum meaning the majority of the mucilage has been left intact throughout the process of drying the cherries. The result is a complex but balanced cup.
When sourcing, we seek ethical coffees and sustainable opportunities to give back to the communities from which we source. Strong partnerships allow us to gather the finest single-origin beans from naturally processed micro-lots and we can’t wait to see what outstanding beans Finca Idealista will produce next.
All Little Marionette single-origin coffee beans are roasted at our warehouse in Rozelle in Sydney’s Inner West. We offer free pick up on all orders so please drop by and we’ll make you a coffee in our warehouse café. We also offer free domestic shipping when you spend $50 or more.
Using only the best beans, our single-origin coffee is roasted, ground, and packaged fresh to ensure maximum flavor. As with all our coffees, it is best enjoyed within 30 days. For maximum freshness, store your beans or ground coffee in a vacuum-sealed or airtight container.
We offer coffee subscriptions, including single origins, so you never run out of coffee again! Choose between a weekly, fortnightly, or monthly subscription and get it delivered straight to your door.
