About the coffee
The washed Red Catuai coffee is a product of the Mierisch family. The Limoncillo farm is located in Matagalpa, Nicaragua. The Catuai coffee variety has been grown for more than four decades, and although it is no longer a novelty on the market, it is appreciated for its high yields, reliable quality, and high profitability for producers. It is a genetic cross between two natural Arabica mutations: the Caturra and the Mundo Novo variety. Since it is a smaller plant, it can be planted more densely. This results in higher planting density and easier access to the cherries during harvest. It is a medium weight cup with notes of sweet chocolate, tangy orange and mild almond.
