CACAO NIB / RAISIN / PINE
Producer: Finca Los Pinos
Growing Altitude: 1400m+
This Nicaraguan coffee is near and dear to our hearts at Treeline. Our founder, Natalie, made her first (intentional) sourcing trip to Finca los Pinos in 2013 when she started the company. Byron Corrales welcomed her into his home, as he eagerly showed her his growing techniques that he had learned from the four generations before him.
This year we are excited to bring you two coffees from Finca los Pinos, a natural (found here) and a washed (this one!). This washed coffee has rich chocolate notes with a nutty body and a sweeter, dried fruit note as it cools. There are pine and citrus notes, with a creamy melon finish.
Finca los Pinos is a fully organic operation, unitizing many products made on their own farm.
As a family, they work hard to convey the message that coffee production is an art that takes dedication and consideration of nature, their community and consumers. Coffee is part of their lives and has become the way they express their passion and craftsmanship to the world.
Additionally, Byron dedicates a large portion of his time to sharing his love and knowledge of organic coffee growing with other farmers so they too can produce a high quality and sustainable product.
Since that trip, we’ve remained in touch with the Corrales family and Natalie and Sara (Byron’s daughter) catch up each year at the Specialty Coffee Expo. Byron’s passion for coffee is evident in the finished product and we hope you can taste the hard work he has put into this year’s harvest.
**Don't Forget! These beans are green right now! We need you to place your order, so we can roast it especially for you and ship FRESH on Tuesday . Wait, tell me more…
At Treeline we like to keep it fresh. All coffees ordered are roasted, packaged and shipped on demand each week on Tuesdays. Orders must be placed before 5 a.m. PST in order to have your coffee shipped that week, because as much as we like to think we are awesome - we are not awesome enough to predict what you might be ordering.
All orders after this time will ship the following week. If this seems like a SUPER long time to wait for caffeine (don't worry, we get it) please leave us a note and we will do everything in our caffeinated power to sort you out.
Due to our cafes being extra needy, we roast some coffee other times in the week as well - if your coffee happens to be the same coffee that they are getting, consider yourself a winner-winner-chicken-dinner because we will probably ship earlier then we just told you we would.
