- Nicaragua El Recreo Jinotega Half-Caff, green unroasted
So rich and flavorful, your guests will never guess it's low in caffeine!
This is a blend of El Recreo's regular coffee and their Swiss Water Process decaf. Swiss Water Process (SWP) is the most effective, all-natural method of decaffeination there is, and El Recreo's is exceptionally good in both taste and aroma. It has the same sweetness and chocolate-caramel tones that have made their regular coffee a hit, full of buttery mouthfeel.
Green unroasted coffee beans for home or commercial roasters.
El Recreo Estate farm is located in a region known as 'The Coffee Triangle', at an altitude of 1,200 meters above sea level. Nicaragua’s northern region is the most fertile in the country, with volcanic soil and luxurious rainforests.
World-class coffee: El Recreo placed in the top 10 in the Rainforest Alliance Cupping Quality contest. We receive the beans unroasted and roast them fresh locally.
Environmentally and socially conscious: El Recreo supports local adult technical education and provides a children's school and a health center to its workers. 30 families live on the estate and receive medical care from the health center's doctors and nurses, as well as nutritional and work safety education. The estate is Rainforest Alliance certified, and the coffee is grown under the shade of indigenous hardwood trees.
