The Salamaji River runs through San Fernando Nicaragua where it flows into the Dipilto Valley, connecting the two departments where this coffee is produced by a collective of 10 growers.

Our foundation at Merit is built on the pursuit of perfection across three different areas: roasting, sourcing and brewing. I see all of our work as a study. An exploration into the next great thing, the next great micro-lot, the next great growing region, the next great tasting experience. Every coffee we work with brings us closer to that goal, and every day we are learning.
"Some great things need a sequel. Imagine if we never entered the Temple of Doom. Imagine if Marty and Doc had never dealt with Biff. Our Yukro was such a hit, we had to bring it back to bless your favorite coffee mug for another season!
Our Yukro is a fully washed coffee, utilizing a Colombian Penagos depulper to process the coffee. These machines are often referred to as an “eco pulper” due to its use of friction rather than extensive water during the processing step.

One of the best ways to support farmers is to buy the varying qualities that they produce. That's exactly what we do in the community of Bruselas, Huila. These are the same small producers that contribute to Andino. Bruselas is the foundational, profound sister to Andino's juicy brightness. Look for smooth milk chocolate notes.
Even with our decaf offering, we take our passion for transparency and flavor seriously. We find that the ethyl acetate decaf process produces coffees with a warm, cozy feel and a distinct berry note.
