We’re on a roll, folks! More Latin American coffees for your taste buds

Honduras Santa Barbara Beneficio San Vicente Caracolillo and Nicaragua Dipilto Beneficio Las Segovias Maracaturra

2014 is full of flavor here at Victrola Coffee! May we share with you two new releases from Latin America. One is a lovely refined microlot peaberry and the other is a gigantic Maracaturra varietal from Nicaragua. You may remember the ‘Big Nic’ from last year – it’s back in all its full-bodied savory-cedar-y goodness.
