The Top Shelf line of Joe Coffees is a group of limited selections designed to highlight the most delicious, memorable, thought-provoking coffees in the world.

This coffee comes from our longtime friends and partners the Mierisch Family, from whom we frequently buy coffee from their farms in Nicaragua and whom we roast our coffee at the Pulley Collective right here in Brooklyn. The farm is owned by Alejandro Saldaña, husband of Maria Ligia Mierisch.

The El Suspiro farm lies along the natural reserve of Cerro el Arenal in Matalgalpa. From its early days as a tiny 5-manzana (nearly nine acre) recreational farm to today's growing 50-manzana estate, El Suspiro is a proud project for the Mierisch family. A beautiful, native-flower-filled plot of land at 1,400 meters above sea level, the family began planting coffee here only as recently as 2005, experimenting with the premise that the land was perfect for growing coffee. Of the many vareties planted, which include Red and Yellow Catuai, Caturra Estrella, Red Bourbon, and Java, this Top Shelf selection is an exclusive harvest of Orange Bourbon coffee.

El Suspiro has five permanent workers, led by farm manager Jaime Sevilla, and seven seasonal worker families from adjacent communities, making up another 30 or so pairs of hands at harvest time.

In the cup, we find a creamy body with notes of melon and chocolate malt. We are pleased to offer this very special coffee from one of our favorite families in Nicaragua.

Top Shelf selections are exclusively available in 8oz bags. 

Top Shelf orders are roasted according to demand in limited quantities on Mondays only, in order to ensure maximum freshness and longevity for these small batches. If this coffee is sold out, watch this space for our next roast availability.

All coffee is delivered whole bean. If you need your order ground, please specify your brew method in the special instructions section.
