Nicaragua Finca La Bastilla, Natural
La Bastilla Estate Natural, Jinotega Region, Nicaragua
Strawberry ~ twiglets ~ sherry
A very boozy and bright coffee. An earthy finish, particularly delicious through a filter.
It's an estate located in the midst of a mountainous natural reserve, all cherries are handpicked according to the microclimates of each individual farm, to maximise their potential.
The estate also houses a fully vertically integrated processing system, to allow for precise differentiation and sorting of each bean.
With the Teach a Man to Fish charity, we fund three children through the on-site technical college of La Bastilla, providing them with the skills to move into tourism, animal husbandry and farming – we are very proud that our first few students have now moved on to university!
What our team says
"La Bastilla Natural - Weird in the most wonderful way, this coffee is super versatile, tasting boozy and zingy as espresso, or softer and strawberry - like in a filter coffee. Big and bold and funky, our Direct Trade partners have delivered a superb example of a classic Natural process." - Andy
"A corker of a coffee paired with a gorgeous cheese board; strawberry, cherry and Twiglets and who doesn't love Twiglets!" - Heather
We work closely with farms worldwide to make sure that coffee farmers are paid a fair price, through Fairtrade and our own Direct Trade certifications. Working hard with coffee farmers to improve their lives and the lives of their families.
We maintain long term relationships with our carefully selected coffee farms, to provide the stability they need to plan for the future. The added bonus? Coffee that improves with every single crop, as their farming practices and equipment improves.

We, at Wogan Coffee, have been lovingly hand-roasting speciality, ethical, sustainable and traceable coffees since 1970. In our third generation, and a wholly independent family company, you can find us rooted in Bristol; the same city as when Mr Wogan established the business over fifty years ago. Laura and James, grandchildren of the bowler hatted gentleman, now have the ropes firmly in their grasp; James as our resident Q Grader in the Bristol Roastery Headquarters, and Laura in London.
