This fuller-bodied medium roast decaf offers notes of milk chocolate, orange, and caramel. It has an above average bright, sweet acidity, leading to a vibrant yet smooth finish.
This decaf is Mountain Water Processed (MWP), a method of indirect decaffeination using the freshest of natural mountain water. The extraction process uses a water-based saturated solution that removes the caffeine while keeping the coffee’s flavor compounds in place. For you, this means all the flavor of a regular coffee, and no harsh chemicals that not only strip the coffee of all its’ deliciousness, but also are icky to consume!

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.
