This coffee came from: Martin Montero at Finca La Bastilla.


La Bastilla Coffee Estate is located in the northeast of Nicaragua, in the region of Jinotega. This area is incredibly fertile and the flora reaps the benefits of the tropical weather and volcanic soil. This allows the farm to cultivate many micro-farms with and produce up to 150 micro-lot coffees. 


La Bastilla Coffee is a partner we are excited to work with, not only in bringing you an exciting new coffee, but we love their commitment to sustainability. Their business functions through the implementation of multiple initiatives on the farm; including efficient use of river water, a water treatment program that channels the methane gas bi-product to fuel the kitchen, and two education programs. 


The first is a primary school, created to serve the children of the employees of the farm. Since its founding in 2003, they are now educating over 200 local students and employing 6 full-time teachers. The second is a technical school, where youth in this rural area have access to training in two areas; farming and tourism. Founded in 2007 the Fundación de Educación y Emprendedurismo Rural (FEER) has the capacity to see 60-75 students a year. They speak to the vision behind this program: “Our ambition is to provide a stepping stone platform to change the community.”


We are proud to share this story and coffee with you. As we continue to grow our offerings at YIELD we will continue our commitment to source coffees with stories worth telling. By partnering with us you are investing in farms like La Bastilla, where communities are being elevated and lives are changed through relational coffee.

The best!!

I bought this for my husband for his birthday and he is a coffee snob! Sips on his coffee and critiques everything he tries lol he took one drink and said “I have a new favorite coffee”. Love that they roast it RIGHT BEFORE they send. Will definitely be a recurring customer!

5 star coffee. 5 star company

The perfect bean to bring a little sweet flavor into a balanced cup. I chose a medium grind with a chemex around 200 degrees. This was my first bag of coffee from yield and I was so impressed by the detail, quality and heart behind everything they do. Love it!!

A new favorite

This roast really grew on me after brewing it to be slightly stronger to bring out the sweetness and flavors. So easy to keep drinking this one as its subtle flavors come through.
