Our Top Shelf line of coffee is a selection of limited releases designed to highlight the most memorable and thought-provoking coffees in the world. We’re thrilled to showcase two special coffees from our longtime partners Fincas Mierisch in Nicaragua.
The Mierisches collectively own several farms and also operate a beneficio, or dry mill, in Matagalpa, Nicaragua, where Eleane Mierisch is the dry mill manager, head of quality control, and producer. This coffee is one of two specially processed lots from Eleane’s Las Delicias farm in Jinotega. While each Las Delicias coffee is uniquely—well—delicious, we recommend tasting the two side by side to fully appreciate the results of different types of processing on the same coffee.
This lot is a traditional washed process, fermented in tanks for 24-36 hours then dried on patios and rested under climate-controlled conditions. This lot of Las Delicias has a delicate herbal sweetness and pleasing acidity.
- Available exclusively in 8 oz bags
- Top Shelf orders are roasted according to demand in limited quantities on Mondays only, in order to maximize freshness and longevity for these small batches.
