Nicaragua La Cumplida Refinada is the second chapter to Master Origin Nicaragua. From the same farm nestled in the mountains surrounding Matagalpa come coffee beans from the same Arabica Marsellesa variety. But we did something altogether new with
it. We developed a unique post-harvest process using natural fermentation to create a very different red fruit taste. A unique natural yeast comes into contact with the harvested coffee cherry and La Cumplida’s master craftsmen fine-tuned time and
temperature to unlock only the best flavour notes.
We endeavored to craft an even more sustainable coffee product. Not only does the experimental process reduce water consumption by half, but the 20 farms contributing their coffee cherry are all agroforestry havens boasting sustainable shade
trees. The long harvest period provided sustained work for many laborers, and the entire project created hundreds of jobs for people in the region to manage the fermentation process and two-stage drying of the cherries.
"This single origin coffee is roasted using a 85/15 split roast technique. The first batch reaches a dark roast in a short time, while the second split is even
darker but also short. This technique allows us to create a little intensity while preserving the fruitiness and delicate aromas of this coffee"
This surprising and unique coffee delights with wild fruity notes reminiscent of candied cherry and pomegranate.
