Santa Maria is one of seven estates that reach across Jinotega and Matagalpa and are owned by Victor Robelo as part of the Las Nubes group. Originally bought in the late nineties after the cessation of action by the Contras, the farms were planted with his fathers’ favourite varietals, Yellow Catuai and Caturra. The Santa Maria farm itself produces mainly Caturra, and under the managerial eye of Jimmy Mierisch is focused on producing high quality lots with new processing methods.
The coffee is picked and processed at the farms own wet mill, before being taken as wet parchment or cherry (depending on if it is a washed or natural coffee) to the dry mill facility in Matagalpa that Las Nubes bought in 2014. It is here that the drying beds are located, stacked three or four layers high to control temperature and humidity as required for the processing method. By owning their supply chain, they can tightly control the variables and therefore ensure that any experimentation is best positioned to be replicated.
All the bags we supply our roasted coffee in include a 1 Way valve for freshness, and Zip Lock so you can easily reseal them to keep the coffee fresh.
The bags we use for our freshly roasted coffee are Omnidegradable, this unique design makes use of PLA for the lining and valve, and zip lock. These bags are shelf stable, and will keep your coffee fresh for as long as you need them. But when disposed of, the entire bag will break down into it's natural components. You can add the bags to compost, they break down to Bio Mass, Cardbon Dioxide and Water all beneficial to plant growth. Biodegradable and compostable, our coffee bags are friendly to the environment and easy to dispose of - you can even dispose of them in your food waste recycling.
