We're thrilled to welcome the next iteration of The Filter Blend. Combining El Diablo from Jinotega, Nicaragua and Bela Vista from Minas Gerais, Brazil, this blend is all about texture with sweet fruit notes and a gorgeously fudgy texture.
Jarbas Cleto Lopes always dreamed of owning a coffee farm, and it was with much excitement that he bought Bela Vista in 1985. Over time he has built infrastructure, planted a further 40,000 coffee plants, and converted most of the farm into a Legal Reserve preservation area. Jarbes joined APAS-Alto das Serra Producers Association, through which they gained access to training to help improve production practices with improved quality and sustainability.
For the past five-plus years, Caravela has been investing in its Jinotega operation by retrofitting a buying station, dry mill, and lab from the ground up to set the groundwork for blends like this one. In Jinotega, farms are generally large, and although this region is not known for speciality coffee, El Diablo coffee defies all those expectations. This 7-producer blend is named after the mountain range that forms part of the nature reserve Datanlí in the Isabelia mountain range and offers an upscale version of the regional profile.
