The coffee trees are mostly of the older Bourbon variety with some Caturra and a small amount of Catuai. The coffee is grown at approximately 1200 to 1400 meters (4000 to 4500 feet) above sea level in the Matagalpa region. The coffee is certified organic, shade grown by OCIA International (The Organic Crop Improvement Association). And this group of organic coffee producers are in their third year of organic certification. The complex aroma, medium body, slight wineyness and clean finish are unique characteristics that only a great Nicaraguan coffee can offer. This Nicaragua Matagalpa coffee is Organic, Shade Grown and Fair Trade certified.
Ingredients: 100% Certified Organic Arabica Coffee Beans.
Birds & Beans
Based in South Etobicoke, Birds & Beans is Canada’s only coffee roaster that offers exclusively Certified Organic (certified by Ecocert Canada) Bird Friendly (certified by the Smithsonian Migratory Bird Center) coffees. Most are also Certified Fair Trade making these coffees Triple Certified.
All Birds & Beans Coffees are roasted and packed using 100% Green energy from Bullfrog Power and roasting is performed in an ultra energy efficient low emissions roaster that uses 80% less gas than a similar sized conventional making them quite possibly the most sustainable coffee beans you can buy.
