About This Coffee
Finca Idealista, run by Gold Mountain Coffee Growers, sits on a mountaintop that borders a nature reserve, whose trees act as a natural air conditioner for its Paca & Caturra variety coffee beans. This cool microclimate lengthens the coffee cherry maturity process, allowing beans more time to absorb natural sugars and other attributes that contribute to a rounded cup profile.
Local pickers are trained to pick only the reddest cherries so that farm’s crop reaches its full potential and highest level of sweetness. Extraordinary care is taken both during wet and dry processing, to inspect all bean and ensure that only the finest, ripest coffee is exported. Finca Idealista invests in volcanic filters to protect the environment from run-off when coffee is washed. The volcanic material is brought from Masaya, one of Nicaragua’s volcanic regions. The farm saves its best coffee cherries to make coffee cherry tea and uses the rest as nutrients for coffee plants and fruit trees.
In addition to its focus on quality, Gold Mountain Coffee also supports the growth and development of the community through educational supplies and running water for schools, scholarships and medical supplies, free computing classes for girls and new initiatives based on needs assessment.

The extended fermentation process of this coffee brings out notes of fruits like apricots and nectarines and some honey sweetness in the cup. This means that the coffee is fully washed to remove all residue from the bean before drying.
