Our Review: Juan de Dios Castillo and his wife Miriam Aruaz began buying land in the Jinotega region of Nicaragua to begin the Paraiso farms in the 80s and now operate five small farms. Much of the family coffee business has been passed on to their children who formed J&M Coffee (Juan and Miriam) and continue their legacy today. The family also owns and operates their own wet and dry mills so they have quality control of their coffee from beginning to end! Their focus since forming J&M Coffee has been to produce high quality coffee without compromising the environment through the use of sustainable and organic practices.
We cup a lot of Central American coffee and expected the usual Nicaraguan profile (light, crisp and fruity with a bit of milk chocolate), but were a little suprised at what we found! The J&M coffee family grows five different varieties of coffee, including Caturra, Catuai, Bourbon, Catimor and Marogogype in order to craft a blend of beans that is truly their own. We found their expert blending yielded a rich, buttery body that was balanced and had warm notes of dark chocolate, caramel and almond. Fans of Guatemalan coffee will love this coffee as well, as it's got the same big body and nutty dark chocolate, though we found it was a more balanced than most Huehuetenangos we've had. Perfect for a morning pick-me-up and sure to be a crowd-pleaser!
