Nicaragua | Alta de Jinotega | Organic | Fair Trade
- milk chocolate
Why we love this product: 100% Arabica, medium roast
Medium acidity, full body, creamy
This delightfully versatile coffee comes from some of the highest (Alta) mountains of the Jinotega region of Nicaragua and is sourced from family owned farms organized around Cooperativa Multifuncional Family Coffee R.L. (COMULFAC), a cooperative founded in 2013.
COMULFAC members live within the department of Jinotega, Nicaragua. Farmers cultivate coffee on farms that average 4 to 100 acres in size and they use their own micro-mill to process harvested cherries, which allows for meticulous care in depulping, fermenting, and drying the coffee.
COMULFAC was established with assistance from J&M Family (a privately owned export company in Jinotega), which has been purchasing coffee from these farmers for several years. The idea behind establishing a cooperative model was to help the farmers organize their efforts and combine their resources to develop social projects aimed at improving the quality of life in their communities.
The results of all this cooperation make for a versatile and harmonious cup. It's well balanced and bright without being too acidic. The body is rich and almost buttery and you'll find comforting notes of milk chocolate, almond and caramel.
