Nomad espresso is all about exploring the seasonality of speciality coffees, the main harvests take place between October - February & March - June depending on the region. These staggered harvests allow for different coffees to be in season throughout the year.
With Nomad, our roasters will choose the best single origin espresso coffees currently in season & the offering will be rotated every couple of months to reflect the progression through the coffee season.
This option is great if you want to switch up your espresso's throughout the year but still get a full-bodied cup packed with chocolatey / fruity flavours.
Colombia - Villamaría
Villamaría is a Colombian municipality located in the department of Caldas. The region is fed by numerous sources of water and natural resources. Villamaría is located a few kilometres from the city of Manizales, whose urban areas are surrounded by the Chinchiná River. The drying station "Jamaica" is located in Chinchiná, Caldas. The station currently represents the harvests of 30 to 50 coffee producing families in the surrounding area of Villarazo, sitting at altitudes higher than the drying station itself. As Jamaica sits at a lower altitude of 1300 MASL, it is better suited to the processing of honey and natural coffees due to the hotter temperatures found here.
This station is focussed on the production of washed, honey, and natural lots. With the aid of Nuna dehydrator and mechanical drying systems, controlling humidity and temperature throughout the drying process aids the processing of honey and natural lots. The station processes coffee from 30 to 50 producers 500 metres further up the mountainside.
