Nicaragua, El Penon

Set on west facing slopes in Jinotgea, near the northern border with Honduras, Santa Luz Estates benefits from rich, volcanic soil.

Here, the growers have methodically divided the estate into smaller farms to separate varieties and processing methods. The cherries are then hand picked and washed in clean water, and dried at low temperatures to ensure a smooth and consistent flavour profile.

This particular variety, H3, was first planted on the estate in 2015 and is actually a cross between Caturra and an Ethiopian Heirloom, specifically suited to growing above 1300 MASL.
It was produced as part of a first wave of hybrid varieties, bringing with it a bright and smooth flavour, whilst also offering more resistance to the horrendous leaf rust disease.

Environmental Impact

All our packaging should be recycled in domestic curbside recycling or at your local recycling centre.

We are almost a waste free business & constantly track and measure our waste and impact on the environment.


We have specifically sourced our packing so it can be recycled.

Our coffee bags are made from LDPE - 4, which can be taken anywhere that recycles plastic bags (supermarkets & council sites). Everything else we use can be put in domestic curbside recycling.


We roast once a week in batches to reduce our carbon footprint. So your coffee might not arrive the next day.

Direct Trade

Whilst Fairtrade (TM) is a great, we believe directly buying from producers means all the money goes to straight to them.
