Roasting: Since this is a honey processed coffee, we like it just a touch lighter than usual. Start at City plus or at the end of first crack for a light-medium roast, which is right where we like it. Feel free to explore darker but we'd avoid anything more than a few seconds into second crack.
Reminder: This coffee is raw, you must roast it before grinding and brewing
Our Review: "What’s the best way to support coffee producers? This is exactly the question Juan de Dios Castillo (the family’s agronomist) and his 4 siblings were looking to answer when they created J&M Family Coffee, a privately-owned export company named after their parents Juan and Miriam (J&M). Their first goal was to sell their parents’ coffee directly to international buyers. It was a way to honor their parents who started cultivating coffee during their childhood with the income from the first family business as tailors in the town of Jinotega. With this first goal completed, Juan de Dios Castillo decided to take the next step and start his own farm called El Pastoral, which has 150 acres of coffee production. During the harvest, the coffee cherries are carefully harvested, sorted, and depulped. Then the remaining seed covered in mucilage is transported to the dry-mill where the weather conditions are more stable for evenly drying coffee. After drying is completed, the coffee is stored and later prepared for export at the same dry-mill. This is a truly integrated model, in which J&M Family Coffee ensures quality control and traceability from farm to export." - Royal Coffee
Last season we were able to get Natural and Washed lots from J&M and we were really impressed. It was an easy decision to snatch up their honey processed lot this season! If you tried the natural and washed from last season, expect this coffee to be the best of both worlds. Slightly complex with a nice, sparkling acidity, it's got a full body and creamy texture. Expect some bold flavors such as juicy cherry and sweet honey along with savory sweet graham cracker and tart lemon.
