Nicaragua – San Francisco
This Nicaraguan coffee is the work of Martin Gadea, who runs the Finca San Francisco and has been farming coffee for thirty years. It’s packed with juicy plum notes, and offers the faintest hint of butterscotch in the finish.
Since coffee was first brought to Nicaragua by catholic missionaries in the late 18th century, the crop has thrived. With its steamy and consistent climate, reliable rainfall and mineral-rich land, the country offers everything a farmer could want to create high-quality coffee. Even better, the traceability here is excellent; we can often track Nicaraguan coffees back to the people who created them!
One such producer is Martin Gadea, who’s long-been a respected farmer in the town of Jiguina. He runs a nine-hectare farm known as Finca San Francisco, from which this particular coffee is drawn. Here, a combination of Caturra and Catuai grows beneath the shade of guava and orange trees. The farm is a family business that Martin inherited from his farmer. The coffee here is processed entirely at the farm’s own wet-mill, with ripe cherries being picked by hand and sorted again at the mill before processing, which involves fermentation for hours in wooden tanks. The ‘head’ and ‘tail’ of each lot are separated from the rest – which ensures only the highest-quality beans in the middle make it into the finished product!
These efforts produce an exceptional fully-washed coffee. You’ll get bags of juicy plum notes, followed by butterscotch sweetness in the finish. Be sure to give it a try!

Orders with Coffee
To make sure your coffee is fresh and packed full of flavour we order the coffee from our roasters as and when the orders are placed; you won't find any stock of coffee in our warehouse! Because your artisan coffee is freshly roasted this means it may take a little longer for your orders to arrive at your door. We allocate 5 working days for all orders containing coffee. It will be worth the wait - trust us.
The process team at Coffee Tasting Club do not work over the weekend (yay!) so any orders placed between Friday after 2pm and Sunday will be processed on the following Monday.
International orders (without coffee) are usually processed and dispatched the same day if ordered before 2pm. Anything ordered after 2pm will be processed the next working day.
