Why love it?
UCA San Juan del Rio Coco is a union of 8 small farmer cooperatives in the Northern Nicaraguan highlands, at about 4,500 ft above sea level. All of their coffee is certified Organic and shade-grown, below a canopy of intact, functioning forests that provide critical habitat for hundreds of migratory bird species. Small shade coffee farms have been increasingly destroyed to make way for sun-tolerant coffee with better yields and lower prices - it is estimated that over 40% of shade coffee farms in Latin America have been lost in the last decade! This coffee is also certified Bird Friendly by the Smithsonian Migratory Bird Center.

Recommendations
Medium roasts were our favorite, as they accentuated the sweetness, nuttiness, and aromatics on pour-over, french press, and siphon pot methods.
