The Modest

Medium – Full City

SKU: MOD-SING Category:



This coffee from Jinotego, Nicaragua is sourced from a collective of small land-holder farms located more than 4,500 feet (1,372 meters) above sea level. Coffee cultivated at these altitudes matures slowly and grows to be harder and denser than beans grown at lower elevations, creating the strictly hard bean (SHB) with inherent consistency and rich taste attributes. The coffee is prepared for export using a standard called European Preparation (EP), meaning the coffee is hand sorted until there are no more than 8 defects per 300 grams of green coffee.

    Good flavor and robust. Good mouth feel- thickness and richness. Not too acidic. Will definitely continue to drink and purchase.

    Still dialing this in Peru – San Ignacio (Medium – Full City)
    The nose is beautiful and as described
    Lot of cocoa and dark chocolate notes on this one

    I have been drinking Modest for over 2 years now and it has been consistently the best coffee I have ever had. You may change the flavors seasonally but it always is a smooth coffee with a fantastic flavor that never upsets my stomach and it fits any time of day. Morning cup, afternoon, or dinner. You have ruined me for any and all other coffee.

    Exactly as described; about as dark of a roast as you can get without hitting the second “crack” / or oily bean stage. Flavor notes hold true. The chocolate and carmel notes just as promised. Little to no acidity; Very smooth. Rare to see a natural process coffee roasted this dark but it Modest nailed it.

    If you want a 5 star cup for yourself, Make your own 50/50 blend with one of their lighter roasts such as the Bali or Guatamela Antigua = Pure Nirvana of complexity and roasty comfort.
