La Bastilla Coffee Estates owns two coffee farms in Nicaragua, La Bastilla in Jinotega and Santa Luz in Matagalpa. Under Markus Fisher who runs the estate and Agronomist,
Martin Montero, they have both focussed on the speciality
The estate is fully independent, using its own resources for every stage of the operation from seed to export container.
La Bastilla works closely with F.R.E.E; the Foundation for Rural Education and Entrepreneurship which engages the farms youth to promote quality education. This is a truly exceptional coffee from the El Peñón micro-farm on the estate which has optimum soil and altitude for the Red Catuai varietal.
The amazing taste comes from the cherries being hand-picked when ripe, then slowly and carefully dried at a low temperature.
Of all the microlots, the candy process is most difficult and time consuming to process but the end result speaks for itself.
