We started buying coffee for Bows & Arrows in October of 2011. Of the first 5 coffees we bought, we maintain buying relationships with 4 of the producers. This week we welcome the return of Mario Vilchez's Finca Santa Gema (hey-ma) to the menu. Hello, Nicaragua.
We're very happy to see Mario's coffee showing so well, again. Big caramel and graham cracker sweetness. This is 5 bag lot of caturra and borbón which will not last the month, but Mario's other farm, La Santisima, will follow it up.
