12oz / whole bean / free shipping

Dry aromas of cedar, citrus, and graham crackers are joined in the cup by prominent notes of cherry compote and chocolate ganache. This coffee’s overarching sweetness, silky body, and bright, livey acidity make it a stand-out on cupping tables at origin and stateside.

Meet Smallholder producers

Old Soul Co. directly sources coffee grown by quality-driven smallholder farmers in the Nueva Segovia region who wet-mill their own coffee but aren’t big enough to finish processing or export their coffees.

Instead, they sell their coffee at higher-than-average rates to the owners of Santa Lucila dry mill, the Paguaga family. The green coffee is graded for quality and blended together to create a larger and exportable lot. With 90 years of coffee-growing and processing expertise, the Paguaga family is committed to supporting neighboring growers with technical and operational expertise through their mill and cupping lab, and giving financial assistance and marketing access not otherwise available.

Nueva Segovia, Nicaragua

In the north of Nicaragua, sharing a border with Honduras, we find the lush Nueva Segovia region. People lived in this area thousands of years before Columbus landed, and these days, ethnic groups and more recent citizens form a rich cultural collage.

Farms are small--averaging around three hectares, and the region itself is smaller than the more well-known Matagalpa or Madriz areas. Be that as it may, it has all the elements that make for quality coffee: shade, fertile soil, high elevations, and of course, careful cultivation and processing.

Some exciting specialty coffees are coming out of the the mountains of Nueva Segovia. Since 2005, farmers and co-operatives have been entering Cup of Excellence contests, consistently placing. CoE juries’ descriptions border on the effusive. Most agree that sweet, floral, and balanced apply.

Old Soul Co.

Started by Tim Jordan and Jason Griest in an obscure alley in Sacramento in 2006, Old Soul Co. has grown rapidly but still enthusiastically shares the same vision ten years later: "celebrate the artisan aspects of bread baking and coffee roasting and dedicate ourselves to getting better at our crafts everyday!"

Old Soul's coffee sourcing practices set them apart: owner Jason Griest travels to as many of the farms growing Old Soul's coffees as possible. In Sacramento, Old Soul is deeply involved in volunteering and giving back to the community. The roasting company has received many 90+ and "Best Of" awards over the past years.
