Today Ozone Coffee Roasters are taking us back to Central America, this time to Nicaragua.

By now you’ve probably come to understand we are big fans of Ozone Coffee Roasters.

Over the years we’ve enjoyed many coffees and admire their philosophies and how they source.

We were fortunate enough to share some insight into this during feature #25 in November 2020 with an interview with producer Pedro Claros and Stephen Leighton of Hasbean provided by Caravela Coffee. A first hand into the relationship that had lead Pedro’s Pink Bourbon lot being used as the official coffee of the New Zealand Aeropress Championship in 2020.

Equally exciting is today’s coffee.

We first enjoyed coffee from Mama Mina when Ozone released it in September 2020 and its with great pleasure we have the opportunity to share it with you today.

(Wrods bu Ozone Coffee Roasters) This is a coffee from one of our most trusted and longest standing producing partners, the Mierisch family. The farm is affectionately named after Erwin, Stephen and Eleane’s grandmother, Mina McEwan. Mina passed away in 2008 and it was seen as a fitting tribute to this amazing lady. Surrounded by trees and mountains in every direction, the aspect of the farm looks onto the vastness of the forest covered high mountain ranges. Through tribute to its namesake, the farm’s workers take great pride in keeping the farm and its surroundings organised and beautiful. Huge amounts of flowers are cultivated here which keeps the environment uniquely aromatic. Despite being a relatively young farm, we think it produces some of the best coffees! Partly down to its altitude and nutrient-rich soil, but mostly down to the huge amount of love and care that’s given to the picking and processing stages.
