This coffee contains a blend of 5 varietals (Caturra, Bourbon, Pache, Javanica, Geisha). Pache is a very rare varietal that originated in Guatemala and is rarely found in Niceragua. Roger & Isabel's Pache has alone won medals in European coffee competitions. **Las Mercedes is nestled in the mountains east of the town of Matagalpa at an altitude of 1330 meters. ***Roger & Isabel's lot is honey processed with as much muclilage as possible possibly making it a black honey bean. Due to unexpected rainfall, some mucilage may fall off so special bags are required in order to transfer the coffee without much loss. ****In terms of sustainability, Roger runs a system of PVC tubing with small cuts underneath his groves to catch water runoff. This then filters through the soil and runs into a stream on the property that supplies the village below. They also use unique pruning techniques on their Bourbon so it can grow adjacent to the Caturra without harm.
