SCA Score:86

Roast: Medium

Varietal: Red Catuai. Yellow Catuai. Caturra

Process: Washed

A fully bodied coffee with subtle apple acidity and caramel sweetness, also some dark chocolate and hazelnut notes. Clean finish.

These coffee beans are largely shade-grown, at altitudes of 1250-1450m, in the protected biodiverse tropical paradise of the Cerro Dantali El Diablo Nature Reserve.

The varietals used are Red Catuai, Yellow Catuai & Caturra, and this is a washed processed coffee bean.

The Speciality Coffee Association score is 86, and the roast level is medium. This is the same beans used for Custard Cream Nicaragua, but taken to a slightly more developed roast to increase some of the sweeter notes, resulting in reduced acidity.

How it Tastes

This is the same high-quality shade-grown coffee bean used for Custard Cream Nicaragua, from the La Bastilla estate in the tropical paradise of a natural reserve in Jinotega, northern-central Nicaragua.

However, the slightly more developed roast produces a different taste profile, reducing the acidity and amping up the sweetness.

For me there’s the enjoyable but not too overpowering apple acidity, balanced by a caramel sweetness, so this coffee for me is reminiscent of toffee apples, although there are also some chocolate and nutty notes.

La Bastilla Farm

La Bastilla coffee farm is located around 20 kilometers from Jinotega, in the stunning tropical paradise of the Cerro Dantali El Diablo Nature Reserve, an extremely important biodiverse protected habitat.

The farm is situated in a unique microclimate, with an abundance of natural shade-providing trees, volcanic soil and a natural biodiversity which results in exceptional quality coffee with distinctive qualities.

La Bastilla became Rainforest Alliance certified in 2003 and maintains an ongoing program for continuous improvement.

Even with milk and a tiny dash of cream, lots of the promised juicy apple and toffee flavours came through. My favourite from Coffeeworks so far. Just lovely .

Toffee Apple Heaven

love ,love, love this .
my fav coffee from here so far - I prefer a medium roast so this works for me .

I usually use it for an Oat Milk Flat white - my morning treat , almost cried when I found the packet empty in the fridge ( cheers daughter ).

I actually get an absolutely beautiful espresso from this .

lifted to another level with my Delonghi Dedica with Kevs recommendations of bottomless portafilter and IMS basket and learnng how to dial in .

got me hook line and sinker .

An interesting coffee

Not sure about, toffee apple, but an interesting blended of flavour. Quite smooth, a fruity undertone, and not too deep and dark. Extracts consistently.

Shh, don't tell everyone

The Toffee Apple Nicaragua is so good that I almost want to keep it a secret in case supplies run low. But that would be selfish, so here we are. It is without doubt the best coffee I have tasted; no bitterness with a delicious flavour and aroma. I have a bean to cup machine and the resulting brew is just divine! But please don't tell everyone ...
