El Tostón is a blend created from farms in the Dipilto region, in Nicaragua. Blend of 90% Caturra and 10% small (grade16-18) Maragogype and Maracaturra beans. The coffee is named after a typical Nicaraguan dish made using plantainbananas called Tostón.
El Tostón coffee is created with the aim of offering a nice solid and homogeneous cup, scoring between 83.5 and 84.5. The Dipilto region’s high altitude also gives the coffee an intricate and tangy character. It is a round and very well-balanced coffee. Full-bodied and chocolatey as an espresso, evoking caramel and chocolate as a filter coffee.
In order to develop different processes on the same farm, we offer this coffee in 3 processes: fully washed, red honey and natural.
Our natural processed Toston dries on African beds for 35 days. The result: zero process water for this plain coffee and a clean, fruity cup as a bonus.
Dipilto / Toston
The Dipilto terroir is located in the production area of Nueva Segovia, which occupies the northwest corner of the country separated from Honduras by the natural border of the Dipilto and Jalapa cordillera. It is in this region that the Mogoton mountain can be found, which rises to more than 2,100 metres and marks Nicaragua’s highest point. The region’s entire economy depends on cereal (maize, beans), coffee, tobacco, livestock and wood production.
