Sweet, with medium body and medium acidity, and hints of milk chocolate, apple, and orange, from Nicaragua. The coffee beans are organically grown and fairly traded, and air roasted in small batches in Lancaster, Pa. 

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 Mountain Water Process (MWP) of decaffeination uses water from the mountains to gently remove the caffeine until the coffee beans are 99.9% caffeine-free, while maintaining the bean's distinctive origin and flavor characteristics.

  • The pods are designed to hold up to 40% more coffee than standard pods; the larger fill capacity means richer brews.
  • The degassing seal in each pod allows for same day roast, grind, and fill freshness. You won't find a fresher pod!
