12oz / whole bean / free shipping

Square One calls this super user-friendly coffee "Sasquatch." “It walks the line between two worlds, silencing naysayers with its sweet caramel undertones and hint of fruit character.” The slightly darker roast highlights rich chocolate notes along with sweet almond, caramel, vanilla, with molasses rounding out the drinking experience.

Meet Lopez Family

Over a hundred years ago, Don Vicente and Angelina Lopez founded Los Papales Estate. In a rich-soiled valley high in the hills above the little town of Jinotega, north-central Nicaragua, their children and grandchildren have carried on this coffee-growing heritage.

WIth their focus on biodiversity and conservation, workers’ rights, community development and sustainability, the Lopez family has made a significant impact on their little corner of the mountain. Not only have they dedicated a sector of Los Papales Estate to forest growth, but they've also sown into their community. In collaboration with the Department of Education, they provide free school on-site for both community and workers’ children and offer employees and community members free medical clinic services and access to vaccines.

Jinotega, Nicaragua

Long before the conquistadores arrived, the Jinotega region was occupied. Artisans, farmers, warriors--descendants of Pre-Colombian peoples--filled the valleys and jungles with their rich and varied culture. The name itself is thought to come from the Nahuatl word "Xinotencatl," meaning alternately "City of the Eternal Men" or "Neighbors of the Jiñocuabos (Mangy tree)." This region, situated high in the Isabella mountain chain, grows between 65-80% of Nicaragua’s coffee. Soil here is fertile. Slopes are densely forested, misted by clouds, and home to huge biodiversity.

Jinotega shares its northern border with Honduras, and the region is a wonder of cliffs, waterfalls, hotsprings, and of course, quality coffee. In fact, over 30 coffees from this region have placed in Cup of Excellence competitions. The coffee sector is mostly made up of smallholder farmers with 1-3 hectares of land.
