Mama Mina, the nickname of our great-grandmother Mina, this farm is located inside the Arenal Nature Reserve in Matagalpa, Nicaragua. The farm has a very unique micro-climate that causes it to have fog for over 60% of the day. This means the farm “auto-shades” itself and does not require many shade trees. This fog also creates cooler temperatures which leads to slower maturation of the cherries. Red Pacamara, a cross of a Pacas with a Maragogype, developed in El Salvador was one of the first specialty varieties we started working with. We have been cultivating this variety for over 20 years now and it's since become a staple of our farms.

Processing Description: Only optimally ripe cherries are hand-harvested, floated in water to remove any unripe cherries, and hand sorted. The wet cherries are then carefully transported to our dry mill where we proceed to sun dry. We emphasize a slow and prolonged drying time, nevertheless we give the wet cherries 100% sunlight on raised beds, as a thin layer, for the first 4 days (this diminishes the risk of mold growth or overfermentation). Following this, the coffee is moved to our greenhouse with raised beds where it will finish its slow drying phase under 50% shade for an additional 25 - 30 days until reaching a humidity below 12%. The final steps are the stabalization periods. First the parchment stabalizes for a month, we then proceed to hull and sort the parchment. Second stabalization occurs in green, for an additional month. This will assure the humidity amongst all the beans are uniform.
