This coffee was an awesome surprise to us here at Tanuki - we were shopping for a coffee to fill a gap in our blends and was given a few samples to test out and this one jumped off the cupping table. 

Notes of Tamarindo candies, strawberry wafers and creme brûlée this is a lively and complex washed coffee from a co-op that Atlas Coffee has helped to grow into something special

For more info check out the profile written by Chris Davidson of Atlas Coffee Importers:

" In March of 2007, we were invited by COCAFCAL (Cooperativa Cafetalera Capucas Limitada) to meet their staff and farmers and advise how they might improve their quality and market access. This introduction was the catalyst for what has become an amazing example of how direct relationships between roasters and farmers can benefit a community. Omar Romero Rodriguez has been general manager of COCAFCAL since that time, and his vision and dedication to the people of Las Capucas knows no limits.

Fast forward to today, COCAFCAL has produced a microlot competition at the coop every year since 2008, and Atlas has been involved each time. COCAFCAL has since added a computer lab for their members, a coffee shop and roasting business to train members on other components of the supply chain, a coffee tree nursery and massive solar drying complex – not to mention the world’s nicest coffee eco-tourism facilities capable of hosting up to 80 people at a time. Microlots continue to be the jewel in COCAFCAL’s crown, with competition scores routinely breaking the 90 point ceiling, with lush acidity and exotic tropical fruit flavors."
