Delicate honey-like sweetness with fruity notes of peach that ends with a hint of almonds.

Delicate honey sweetness and a fruitiness reminiscent of ripe peaches. The taste has an almond-like fullness that simultaneously rounds off a perfectly balanced medium roast coffee.

A perfect coffee for those who enjoys the classic plunger jug coffee or the popular pour over coffee makers.

Ziggy from ØNSK is a huge fan of Leonel's coffee: "To me, this is the perfect coffee, it has a rich and soft taste, complimented by a hint of fresh fruit. This contrast results in a superb, complex coffee. I always brew it on my plunger jug, which by the way is also how Leonel brews his coffee at Finca Santa Prisca."

71 year old Leonel has devoted his entire life to coffee. He lives on the Finca Organica Santa Prisca farm, which he has owned for 43 years. The small coffee farm is an oasis in the middle of the forest, where Leonel's many grandchildren play and laugh under the tall trees.

Leonel is a man and farmer of principles. He does not believe that pesticides are necessary for the production of great coffee, and he produces his own fertilizer on the farm. His motivation is to take care of the nature and leave the world a better place for his grandchildren.

Leonel Valladares and his family are producing some of the best coffee beans in Nicaragua, while protecting the surrounding nature and taking care of the family.

Leonels coffee has been a part of ØNSK from the very beginning. We are incredibly proud to sell a coffee that is synonymous with the ideals on which ØNSK is built.
