A beautiful new co-op arrival, certified FTO and clean as a whistle. Great cup from light to dark.
This coffee is sourced from family-owned farms organized around Asociación de Mujeres Caficultoras del Cauca (AMUCC), a producer association with 274 women who live within the municipalities of Balboa, Cajibio, Caldono, El Tambo, Florencia, La sierra, La Vega, Morales, Piendamo, Popayan, and Timbio in the department of Cauca, Colombia. The average age of AMUCC members is 40 years old and each member is the head of her household. AMUCC coordinates with Expocafé (an exporter dedicated to supporting coffee cooperatives) to improve coffee quality and increase access to international markets for women who produce coffee.
Tasting Notes: A nice clean cup tasty from light to dark. Our favorite was a medium roast, but use your personal preference for a good roast level to start with. Fuller bodied with a pronounced toasted walnut and baker’s chocolate undertone. Lighter roasts have a bit of acidity upfront, giving it some citric/floral balance to the classic Colombian nuttiness, smoother cup and more delicate at lighter roasts. Darker roasts produce a far less citric/floral cup with much stronger darker tones and a fuller body. Hints of caramel as the cup cools if you shoot in the medium roast range.
Roasting Notes: An easy to roast coffee. Avoid light roasts if you do not like a little acidity. A full city roast really bring forth the baker’s chocolate undertones which many will love, a nice medium roast though has the best balance and was our favorite roast point, easily clean enough to hold lighter roasts, but will produce a much sharper more floral/fruity/nutty cup. Extra setup time can help pop out the wonderful little complexities and reduce a little sour acidity if too much upon first taste.

Always our favorite Mexican coffees . A little fuller bodied than most lots, good sweetness and full of floral, nutty, caramel & chocolaty tones. Lighter roasts accentuate the cool floral & caramel qualities but will have noticeable lemony citric crispness. Medium to just before 2nd crack will produce smooth defined and balanced cups. Darker roasts get edgy and strong, smoky nutty and bakers chocolate tones which some will definitely like as well
Tasty from light to dark but I would shoot for a nice medium roast to start. A little bit of a rougher cup into second crack but very chocolaty with just a hint of a floral aromatics, a smoky finish. A bit more delicate, sweeter and smoother at lighter roasts. A good bean to play with different roast levels. Even roasting with medium to low chaff.
Nicaraguan RFA Selva Negra – Washed Processed
One of the most sustainable farms in the world! A wonderful direct relationship coffee. Nicaraguan Selva Negra coffee is cultivated in the most ecologically sustainable and socially responsible way possible. Learn more by reading our Selva Negra Grower Profile.
Selva Negra’s history is in many ways the history of the coffee in Nicaragua altogether. In the 1880’s the Nicaraguan government invited young German immigrants to come and settle in Nicaragua in order to promote coffee growing in the northern highlands. Many accepted the offer, thus forming the main coffee plantations of the country; some estates bear names of their motherlands. Selva Negra means Black Forest, and the coffee estate is called La Hammonia, Latin for Hamburg. Located approximately 4,000 ft. above sea level, La Hammonia has been producing fine old style Arabica coffee for over 100 years. Eddy Kühl & Mausi Kühl-Hayn, the farm’s proprietors are descendants of two of these original German immigrants – Alberto Vogl and Klaus Kühl.
Selva Negra Estate Coffee is grown at a high altitude in a shaded environment. This allows the bean to have a slow development cycle which instills an intense and fulfilling flavor to each bean. The coffee is not only 100% Arabica, but more importantly it is mostly Bourbon and Typica strains (which produce higher quality beans than other varieties of coffee trees). The region of Matagalpa, Nicaragua is mountainous with excellent volcanic soil producing exceptional beans. Finally, the coffee is prepared using an environmentally friendly washing process, which gives the coffee still one more unique quality enhancing aspect.
A very nice and super fresh batch of their traditional farm aggregate. A little hint of citrus floral upfront balanced with nice complex malty tones. Great everyday drinker at a medium roast, balanced with a sweet edge. A heftier cup at the darker roasts and equally as tasty, fuller bodied with strong malty and smoky tones but still retains that sweeter edge to it.
Easy to roast, great prep on the beans and roast pretty even. Make sure hit a medium roast or darker, with being a little lower acidity, not a ton of jazz at those lighter roast points but as you progress the roast it builds that great malty tone that Nicaragua is known for.
