Read about Grind Types

We have recently adjusted our grind options. With that in mind, we wanted to offer this primer so that you can choose the best grind-style for your preferred brewing method.

Whole Bean-- While we are happy to grind your beans, your coffee will stay fresher longer if you grind it as you go. There are many great home grinder options out there and many are surprisingly inexpensive.

Drip-- This is a medium grind that is the most versatile. Brewing methods using drip include home coffee drip machines, pour-overs (like Hario), Chemex, and AeroPress.

Espresso-- This grind is generally used for espresso makers. This includes home machines and stove-tip espresso pots. The grind is the most fine and is optimized to work with a high pressure extraction system.

Coarse-- Coarse is for percolators, french press, cold brewing, and sometimes AeroPress. Coarse is the biggest/loosest grind and enables water to move more freely steeping coffee for extraction.

All of the above, while generally true in the industry, also should be adjusted for preference. Feel free to experiment and please contact us if you have questions and we will be happy to work with you.

Product Overview

Las Diosas is an incredible all-female coffee farming cooperative made up of four smaller primary level cooperatives in Northern Nicaragua representing over 360 women. The co-op is affiliated with Fundacion Entre Mujeres (FEM), one of the most respected women's empowerment organizations in Nicaragua. FEM promotes participation in the economic and social development of rural women in the Department of Estelí, through productive projects, education, technical advice, women's health, workshops on gender awareness, which work towards the improvement of the situation of women in their area. Las Diosas, based in the town of Esteli, not only grows coffee for export, they also produce honey, Jamaica wine and tea, and roasted coffee to sell in local markets. The women have been trained in agroecological farming practices that not only satisfy organic certification, but also go beyond to focus on the health of the soil, other plants, the water, and the entire environment in their communities. Survivors of many hardships in the past ten years including earthquakes, landslides, drought, plant disease, and hurricanes, the women of Las Diosas are fearless, resilient, and persistent in their work.

 

Available in a variety of grind options.

    We subscribe and drink every morning.

    Posted by Charlie on Feb 1st 2021

    This is a true medium roast, and the roasty flavor doesn't overpower the coffee flavors, which are quite nice. We subscribe monthly and drink it every morning. Like all coffee, it is better if ground fresh. Being a relatively lighter roast, it requires more coffee per water than you might use for national and grocery brands, and there's likely higher caffeine content. When brewed strong with good water distribution, this is a very rich and fulfilling coffee. I also drink leftovers cold, and it is good cold too. Not to mentioning, supporting a Georgia small business.

    My Favorite Cafe Campesino Blend for 20 Years!

    Posted by Jill Elizabeth on Aug 19th 2019

    This is the first blend I tried from Cafe Campesino nearly 20 years ago and I still love it. It's very smooth with a strong flavor and delicious aroma. I've tried others and have enjoyed them but the Nicaragua blend will always be at the top of my list.

    Our favorite for 20 years!

    Posted by Rich on Oct 23rd 2018

    This single-origin coffee is our favorite! We prefer the medium-roast. The flavor varies a little year-to-year but its always good. One time I had a cup from a day old pot and it had taken on a mild chocolate flavor! Trying it again in the years after it isn't always so but I sure do remember it.
