TASTING NOTES

Aromas of berries, grapefruit and orange. A winey acidity in the cup is supported by flavors of chocolate and plum. A treat for natural process lovers.

 

Background

The Mierisch Family has operated farms in Nicaragua for generations, planting their first coffee farm in 1908. Several years ago while judging the Cup of Excellence competition in neighboring Honduras, they were very impressed by the quality of the coffees and the altitudes available to growers here. They decided to purchase some land at high elevation: 1600-1700m and plant a selection of their best varieties from their farms in Nicaragua. 

Ethiosar is a hybrid they brought back from Brazil a decade ago. Reported to be a cross of Rume Sudan x Sarchimor, back-crossed to Villa Sarchi which is one of the parents of the Sarchimor hybrid. This variety is currently limited to but a handful of farms and is produced in very small quantities. In early 2021 The Mierisch family  held an online auction for their best cupping coffees from their Nicaragua Farms. Judged by an international panel of experienced Cup of Excellence judges, an Ethiosar variety coffee ended up taking the top spot with a score of 90.30. A very promising variety in the cup that is also a very productive plant.
