Nelson Ramirez Finca ChelI - Espresso
Chocolate, raisin, plum
Nelson Ramirez bought this farm in 2009 on the same day his second son was born and named it after his grandmother. The farm is located on the famous Santa Barbara Mountain in the Montecillos region, which has a reputation of its own for its very special microclimate. High altitude, cold nights, volcanic soil and high humidity produced by the nearby lake, Yojoa, provide exceptional growing conditions for coffee. Very often coffees from this mountain will show sparkly citrus, blackcurrant and very complex qualities Nelson is currently building solar dryers and plans to ferment 100% of his washed lots. He is also designing a whole tracking system to keep a record of what happens to each lot from the date the cherries get picked till the moment the bean gets roasted and cupped.
