Around 20 coffee farmers contribute to this coffee, which grows on the slopes of the Cordillera Isabelia mountain range in Nicaragua. The combination of their efforts creates a nutty, creamy cup of coffee. Then, after cooling slightly, subtle tones of brown sugar, cocoa, and citrus fruit present themselves. This Nicaraguan coffee easily pleases a wide audience of coffee lovers with its comforting flavors. Cordillera Isabelia transitions the drinker into flavors matching the cooling weather.
At Blueprint, we source little Nicaraguan coffee. Of course, this speaks not to our views on the potential of the country. Instead, our Central American sourcing focuses more closely on relationships in Guatemala and El Salvador. However, a small gap in our relationship coffee offerings opened and this lot from Cordillera Isabelia in Nicaragua earned its spot by way of a few round of cupping.
Team taste notes: nougat, mixed nuts, grapefruit, brown sugar, creamy, cocoa, caramel
The seasonal and transparent coffee blend, Tektōn, chases a difficult goal – maintaining complexity while remaining approachable. Tektōn satisfies the novice or experienced coffee lover. Regular coffee changes throughout the year maintain balance and seasonality.
We commit ourselves to exhibiting the qualities of one of the most flavorful beverages in the world. To do so, we create and construct balanced, intoxicating, and special flavor experiences. Our single origin offerings are delicious and complete by themselves, but blending creates something new and unique. French wine and cocktails, like the Sazerac, guide us. By adding a small amount of five ingredients (sugar, bitters, lemon, absinthe, ice), a serving of whiskey becomes a new experience. This is a different, yet delicious, taste experience than that offered by any neat pour.
Tektōn, a seasonal coffee blend, compliments our single origin offerings. It matches the integrity of those offerings by remaining a seasonal coffee with a transparent supply chain. We embrace the future insight and taste experiences Tektōn will provide.
Version 17 blends two sweet coffees that are quite different from one another. Cordillera Isabelia from Nicaragua contributes sweet, nutty, brown sugar notes. Then, Worka – Legese Lemiso from Ethiopia brings the fruity and floral sweetness. Together, the coffees combine to create an experience not too different than fruity baked goods.
