Single Origin Feature - Nicaragua - Matagalpa

Bump ‘n Grind is currently featuring a new Single Origin roast: the Nicaragua - Matagalpa. A lightly roasted approach brings out the complex layers of this bean from the northern mountain regions of Nicaragua. The Matagalpa region is famous for its lush tropical vegetation, most of the coffee grown in this region is shade grown in nutrient-rich, volcanic soil. Grown 700m above sea level, in a climate the locals refer to as “the eternal spring,” these beans go through a washed process before they are dried and shipped to our roastery in Kensington, MD. In line with our commitment to “conscientious coffee,” these beans are both certified organic and fair trade!

BnG Wax's Version Excursion: The Dubplate Special

This week’s Liner Notes wrap up the final leg of the Bump ‘n Grind Wax Version Excursion to the island of Jamaica.

In the last days of the B ‘n G Wax crew’s search for music and sunshine, they were rewarded with the opportunity to cut specialized dubplates by foundational reggae artists, Prince Alla and Ken Boothe. A vital aspect to the development of reggae and dancehall traditions in Jamaica, and later globally, dubplates are unique renditions of hit songs that popular artists sing for requesting deejays, record labels, and radio stations. Dubplates are valuable resources in the Jamaican music industry, one-of-a-kind specials played during dances and mixes that flamboyantly tell the public who the biggest and baddest selectors are in town.
