For Unkle Funka we have sourced two delicious Nicaraguan natural coffees for this year’s incarnation of everyone’s favourite funk-in-the-cup espresso! Both farms are owned and operated by the same owner and situated in the Jinotega region close to the Honduran border. Over 80% of the country’s coffee is grown in this area, alongside cocoa, basic grains, fruit and indigenous flowers. The region is also home to the largest nature reserve in Central America – the Bosawás Biosphere Reserve.
On both farms coffees are selected for different processing methods. These particular lots are comprised of hand-picked perfectly-ripe cherries that are then taken to raised drying beds. Here, controlled fermentation allows for unusual and pungent fruit flavour to develop – this is termed the natural process.
This year’s Unkle Funka Espresso is seasonal, summery and full to bursting of distinctive boozey fruit sweetness. Think floral quince, sticky raisin and rum which softens to ripe plum and vanilla in milk.
