Reynaldo Mairena, Nicaragua
Finca Monterrey - Reynaldo Mairena
Finca Monterrey lies in Aranjuez, Matagalpa region of Nicaragua at about 1400-1500 masl. Reynaldo Mairena has been farming here for many years producing consistent but lower-end specialty coffee. This past season, a great friend of ours proposed a special project for a small percentage of Reynaldo's coffee. 1050 pounds of 100% Red Catuai was separated out and naturally processed - a first for Reynaldo's coffee. The resulting coffee scored several points higher than any of his previous coffees and the small, 10 bag lot was offered to a handful of roasters and we were lucky enough to score one of them. This is a rare, amazing project that we hope to continue for many years.
