Our Review: This coffee 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. Wonderful as a base in your "house blend" or to add body to an espresso, but it's equally at home all by itself. Finally, it takes most roast levels quite well, though we find it shines best in the medium to medium-dark range!
