COUNTRY: Nicaragua

Nicaragua produces quite a bit of coffee on the global scale; they rank as the 12th largest producer in the world. Though they produce such a high yield, this is virtually all grown in a small northern pocket of five regions: Esteli, Jinotega, Madriz, Matagalpa, and Nueva Segovia. Interesting to note is, even though these regions are all in the north, they all produce coffees with a different cup profile because of their different microclimates

REGION: Jinotega, Nicaragua

The Jinotega region is said to be the best. As many regions do in Nicaragua, Jinotega has volcanic soil that aids in its coffee production. Also, interesting to note is the tropical climate which produces the most consistently high-quality coffee.

PRODUCER: Cooperativa Multifuncional Family Coffee R.L. (COMULFAC)

Juan de Dios Castillo and his 4 siblings were looking to answer the question “What’s the best way to support coffee producers?” when they created J&M Family Coffee. J&M is a privately owned export company that is named after Jaun’s parents, Juan and Mariam. As a way to honor their parents’ farm (Finca Paraiso), the first goal for the Castillo siblings was to sell their parents’ coffee directly to international buyers. Juan and Mary started Finca Paraiso when the 4 kids were children. They saved up money from the first family business, tailors in Jinotega, to start the coffee farm. After quickly realizing that there were many other producers with the same mindset, J&M Family Coffee   established a cooperative called Cooperativa Multifuncional Family Coffee to organize their efforts and combine resources to gain certification and develop social projects aimed at improving the quality of life in their communities. The members of COMULFAC own small farms of only a few acres, small enough that they all micro-mill their own harvest. J&M Family Coffee ensures quality control and traceability from farm to export so producers earn better income to reinvest in their farms and strengthen their families’ livelihoods.

A lovely bean!

I roast mainly for espresso, and I’m always looking for a new bean, with robust flavour, good crema and smooth finish. It’s not often you find a bean that checks all the boxes, but this does. Roasted 10 seconds past the end of FC, it’s a great espresso. I’m getting it again

Excellent

We’re very happy with Green Coffee, we bought some at another local store and even the colour a pale grey was ok but lots of bad beans, compared to green coffee which is green and one bad bean so far.!
