San Rafael Coffee
Nicaragua Selva Negra Espresso
|Roaster Location:||Carson City, Nevada|
|Coffee Origin:||Matagalpa, Nicaragua|
|Est. Price:||$22.00/16 oz.|
|Review Date:||October 2010|
Complex layers of flavor in the small cup, including sweet lemon, nut, cocoa and flowers. A sweet concentrated fruit note lingers deeply into the finish. In two parts milk the profile softens and rounds, with flowers still evident and the chocolate taking on a spicy character.
This coffee is certified organically grown and Rainforest Alliance certified, meaning it was produced following sustainable ecological and socio-economic criteria developed by the Sustainable Agricultural Network, a coalition of independent, environment-focused non-governmental organizations. Produced on the Selva Negra (Black Forest) farm, a name that reflects the nostalgia of this pioneering coffee farm's 19th-century German founders. In the 21st century its fourth-generation owners have reinvented Selva Negra as a celebrated agri-tourism destination, a completely self-sufficient, sustainable farm community with extensive forest reserves and a very characteristic Nicaragua coffee. Nevada-based San Rafael Coffee Company is a family owned café and roastery that donates proceeds from the sales of their coffees to humanitarian and missionary work in Nicaragua.
