Zoom Peralta Estate, Nicaragua

Peralta Estate, Nicaragua


The Peralta Family coffee-growing history dates back to the beginning of the 20th century, but it was only in 2008 that brothers Julio and Octavio shifted focus to developing unique specialty lots. 

Our coffee importer Olam have worked with the Peralta Family for several years and have always admired the attitude and values that they have brought to their coffee operation. This carefully controlled extended anaerobic fermentation micro-lot is a perfect example of this, and a further showcase of how the Peralta family continue to position themselves at the forefront of specialty coffee innovation.

In the cup, expect a full bodied coffee full of mouth coating strawberries and cream flavours, complemented by some orange acidity.

Peralta Estate, Nicaragua

The producer of this coffee, Ashok Patre, is a coffee progressive. Well-travelled and bursting with initiative, he has drawn inspiration from elsewhere to step beyond the boundaries of traditional Indian coffee cultivation and processing. Brix levels are tested before harvesting. Processing includes natural, honey and fermentation experiments alongside the traditional washed.

For all intents and purposes Ratnagiri Estate is an organic/biodynamic farm and also maintains official Rainforest Alliance Certification. Quarterly soil tests and organic corrections to soil are applied. Ionic seawater and sea weed extract are applied to improve plant immunity and sugar levels of the fruit.

The estate is a lush shaded environment with 3 stories of shade. It is home to over 48 recorded bird populations, monkeys, leopards, wild boar, tigers, mongoose and - on occasion - elephants. The rich biodiversity demands that Ashok and his family have an approach to farming which places ecology and harmony with the environment at the forefront. This is a world class farm, truly one of the leading in India and a great example of Olam and the farmer working together to engineer excellence.
