November at Caffe Ladro


Fireside is Here!

We chose two coffees for this year’s Fireside blend.

Peru Norandino is a full-bodied coffee with notes of pepper and cinnamon. Nicaragua Segovia is a lively, sweet coffee with distinct vanilla bean. Together in a darker roast, these two coffees make up what we think is the best Fireside yet. Smooth, creamy, and with a warming spicy note that is perfect for those short autumn and winter days.

Peru Norandino is sourced from Cooperativa Agrícola de Servicios Múltiples Norandino. Coffee producers receive training and technical assistance in land management, irrigation, organic farming, productivity, quality control, and reforestation programs. Norandino also seeks to improve the quality of life for coffee producers and their families through projects promoting commercial diversification. Nicaragua Segovia is shade grown in the Segovia region of Nicaragua by members of PRODECOOP, a cooperative of over 2000 families.

We hope you enjoy this year’s holiday roast as much as we do!
