Santa Teresa del Mogoton
Medium Roast - Notes of chocolate, sweet and fruity.
Producer Silvio Sanchez came to coffee farming through studying agronomy. His mother loved coffee and so the two of them saved their money, took out a loan, and purchased a piece of land well-suited to growing coffee in the La Union, San Fernando region of the Nueva Segovia department.
Santa Teresa de Mogoton is a relatively remote farm, accessible by single road that leads to a handful of farms. The farm is beyond the reaches of cell phone service and the deep trenches along the sides of the road from heavy rainfall challenge even well-equipped 4×4 trucks.
Natural processing begins when cherries are picked, weighed, and checked for quality at the farm. Next, cherries are transported an hour and a half down the mountain to the warm, dry town of Ocotal in plastic boxes to keep the cherries in good shape. The drying is done in full sun on African drying beds at the Expocamo mill. The coffee is constantly turned and sorted for uniformity. Each day’s picking, called a “partida,” is delivered and dried separately.
