The Mierisch family has a rich history in the coffee industry that dates to 1908, establishing themselves as prominent coffee growers and producers. Yet it was only 21 years ago that Senior Erwin Mierisch, the son of Dr. Erwin Mierisch, began focusing on producing speciality coffee. This shift came about when Senior Erwin Mierisch participated in a Nicaraguan coffee competition, where he translated for his father. This event marked a turning point for the family's coffee journey, propelling them into the realm of speciality coffee production. 

The Mierisch family's dedication and expertise has led them to own three farms in Honduras and an impressive eleven farms in Nicaragua. This wide-ranging ownership showcases their commitment to coffee cultivation.. Moreover, both Senior Erwin and Eleane Mierisch have played pivotal roles as head judges in the Cup of Excellence, a prestigious coffee competition that empowers producers in various coffee-producing countries.


In the pursuit of producing exceptional coffee, the Mierisch family has implemented innovative techniques and quality-enhancing practices. Notably, their coffee trees in Nicaragua and Honduras are meticulously crafted with Robusta roots. This cultivation strategy not only enhances the resilience and consistency of the trees, but also preserves the unique flavour profiles of the coffee. The effectiveness of this approach was underscored by their victory in the Honduras Cup of Excellence in 2019. Their Gesha varietial from Santa Lucia farm secured the coveted 1st place, achieving an impressive score of 94.84. 

Cerro Azul has undergone substantial improvements under the Mierisch family's stewardship. With its distinctive characteristics, including higher rainfall levels compared to other farms, Cerro Azul's soil composition closely mirrors that of one of their Nicaraguan farms. 

The Mierisch family remains steadfast in their preference for 100% sun-drying, believing that slow drying prolongs the coffee's shelf life and preserves its intrinsic qualities. By adhering to this practice, the family continues to prioritise the excellence that has become synonymous with their name in the coffee industry.
