Le grain dans tous ses états 250G
A crazy bet, of all colors, with three different processes from the same farm in Nicaragua
Aromas of red fruits
100% arabicas from Enrique's farm
Roasted for espresso and filter
This second audacity in the Audacious Blends range is making waves:
We decided to blend 3 coffees from the same country, from the same farm, but the difference lies in the process:
Finca Aurora Honey (Parainema)
Finca Aurora Nature (Obata)
Finca Aurora Washed (Caturra)
While Parainema is a hybrid arabica that will best resist coffee tree diseases with a unique final cup quality, the Obata variety is a mutation of two arabicas that we love: Timor and Villa Sarchi. First introduced and developed in Brazil in 2014, it then conquered the world thanks to its potential and its performance. Finally, Caturra is a natural mutation of bourbons, discovered in 1915.
The Ferrufino family created their coffee business in 1992 to acquire the Aurora farm, also called "Finca Aurora" in 2004. It is a family farm in which each member of the family acts with operating methods to local ecosystem . Aurora Farm coffees are rated SHG EP. Currently managed by Dr. Enrique Ferrufino, the family farm is located in the Matagalpa region between 1,200 and 1,400 meters above sea level. The harvests are carried out between December to March each year.
Dr. Enrique Ferrufino, a surgeon by trade, was born and raised on a coffee farm in the mountains of Matagalpa in 1956. Together with his wife Silvia, a pediatrician, the Ferrufino family decided to enter the coffee business in 1992 and bought Finca Aurora 12 years later. They instilled a love of coffee in their three children from an early age. Since acquiring Finca Aurora, the whole family has worked together to produce excellent coffee.
One of the company's core values is to inspire people through coffee. Over the years, they have invested in providing workers with fair wages, safe living conditions, health services, food and education. They also work with small producers in the region to help them improve their farming practices.
The preservation of nature is a top priority for the Ferrufino family. They use only renewable energy and work diligently to conserve water resources and natural habitats. The farm is home to a variety of native trees, home to many species of birds and wildlife. These trees also provide shade for planting and fertilize the soil with organic matter, which protects the land from erosion, droughts and floods.
After selective manual picking, the cherry is pulped on an eco-pulper and left to dry on raised beds or terraces. Finca Aurora is one of the first farms in Nicaragua with a fully integrated coffee operation on site. They produce, wash and dry the coffee on the farm. The coffee is ground, sorted and bagged at Beneficio Finca Aurora under the watchful eye of the farm team. This allows full quality control throughout the process.
