Our Resolute blend is roasted to create a cup that is approachable, bold and sweet. This iteration of the blend is composed of 75% Nicaragua Los Altos and 25% El Salvador Santa Elena.
We have been working with the Mierisch family and their award winning farms since 2009 and every year we look forward to visiting them in Nicaragua. The Mierisch family - father Erwin Senior, daughter Eleane and brother Erwin are constant innovators and explorers of the potential of coffee, with a continual focus on developing better farming techniques, varietal experimentation and the future of the coffee farming industry. We selected the deliciously creamy Los Altos to give the blend a deep sweetness that is toned with comforting notes of nuts and chocolate.
Santa Elena has been in the heart of our blends for years. Fernando Lima is a quiet and kind man with a welcoming smile. Santa Elena overlooks the beautiful volcano crater Lake coatepeque. The Santa Elena farm is based at a very high altitude with dense shade over the coffee trees. This combination creates a slow maturation of the coffee cherries which means the coffee slowly ripens, developing complex and sweet flavours. Fernando then takes his coffee to his Serbia Mill closer to coatepeque where it is washed and dried in thin layers on patios.
