Our roast of the unique and highly prized Nicaragua Cup of Excellence award-winning coffee from Finca La Cascada is now available in whole bean and by the cup at Open Eye Cafe and Caffe Driade!
Carrboro Coffee Roasters President Scott Conary visited this region after serving as a judge for the Nicaragua Cup of Excellence program. Finca La Cascada is named for the waterfall that runs through the carefully maintained property. Farmer Genaro Herrera believes the secret to the quality of his coffee is the dedication and commitment taken in every step of the process.
The Cup of Excellence award is the most prestigious honor a coffee can earn. The program develops and promotes some of the most outstanding coffees in the world, incentivizing the production of exemplary quality coffee while growing local economies at origin and returning profits directly to farmers. Cup of Excellence award-winning coffees have secured record-breaking prices far above those typically offered, in direct connection to their superior quality, and are often only available in very small batches.
This winning Nicaragua COE has a delightful berries and creamy chocolate balance with a spicy, chai-like, creamy finish. We have a very limited amount of this roast available, so come get a taste while you can!
We will be partnering with Open Eye Cafe to offer a $1 discount on both whole bean and pour-over brews of the Nicaragua Cup of Excellence roast during Carrboro’s town-wide Summer Harvest Sale! Stop by Open Eye July 10-12 to enjoy a cup at this reduced price.
