Announcing the first Regenerative Organic Certified™ coffee ever commercially available! We are proud to partner with Cooperativa Sacaclí to bring you the first Regenerative Organic Certified™ (ROC™) coffee ever available. Climate change is disproportionately affecting the tropical and subtropical regions where coffee is grown: 50% of global land area suitable for coffee production may be lost by 2050 due to climate change 60% of coffee species are considered at high risk of extinction 25M smallholder coffee growers are at risk of losing their primary source of income due to declining coffee yields Regenerative agriculture--a practice of holistic farming where everything is seen as interconnected and vital--can build resilience to mitigate the effects of climate change and protect the future of coffee and our planet. ROC™ was established in 2017 to promote holistic agriculture practices in an all-encompassing certification that champions three pillars: Soil Health & Land Management Animal Welfare Farmer & Worker Fairness In spring 2022, Cooperativa Sacaclí in Nicaragua became the first coffee producer in the world to harvest a Regenerative Organic Certified crop. We are excited to bring you this coffee from the forefront of the regenerative revolution!

More Details

Roast Level: Light Medium
A Light Medium Roast coffee, sometimes referred to as a "City Roast" or "American Roast," lies between a light and medium roast. This roast level strikes a balance by preserving the coffee bean's unique characteristics while allowing for a moderate development of body and flavor. The beans have a medium brown color, exhibiting a slight sheen of oils, providing a more balanced and nuanced flavor profile. A Light Medium Roast typically highlights the coffee's inherent fruity, floral, or citrus notes, while also providing some of the deeper, richer flavors associated with medium roasts.
Bean Source Country: Nicaragua
Nicaraguan coffee is celebrated for its well-balanced and approachable taste. Grown primarily in the fertile volcanic highlands, the coffee beans benefit from a unique combination of nutrient-rich soils, high altitude, and mild climate, which imparts a smooth, medium body and gentle acidity to the brew. Nicaraguan coffee is known for its delightful flavor notes, which include milk chocolate, caramel, and toasted nuts, accented by a subtle touch of stone fruits and citrus.
Bean Source Region: Jinotega
Jinotega is a prominent coffee-growing region in Nicaragua, located in the country's northern highlands. Coffee from Jinotega is known for its medium to high acidity, balanced sweetness, and a range of flavor profiles. It often exhibits notes of chocolate, caramel, nuts, and citrus, with a smooth and creamy body, offering a diverse and enjoyable coffee experience.
Organic coffee is produced without synthetic chemicals, such as pesticides, herbicides, and artificial fertilizers. Instead, organic coffee farmers rely on natural and sustainable agricultural practices like crop rotation, composting, and biological pest control. To be labeled as organic, coffee must meet strict regulations and certification criteria set by governing bodies, such as the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) or the European Union (EU). Organic coffee not only supports environmental sustainability but may also offer health benefits, as it contains fewer chemical residues than conventionally grown coffee.
