El Capitan is our darkest roast with tasting notes of plum, hazelnut and thyme. Underdog is proud to achieve a Speciality Rating from the Speciality Coffee Association – a sure sign that El Capitan is a premium coffee. El Capitan works perfectly with espresso machines, guaranteeing a consistently great cup of coffee with rich flavours. El Capitan beans also work superbly with bean to cup machines to produce truly rich tasting cappuccinos and lattes. The dark sensations of El Capitan coffee can also be enjoyed at home – just order our freshly ground coffee for use in a cafetiere.
Founded in 1998, the Nicaraguan coop the Unión de Cooperativas de Servicios Múltiples (UCOSEMUN) produces our dark and fruity roast, El Capitan. Eight cooperatives set out to improve the lives of small scale coffee farmers in the region, offering them the opportunity to expand their operations. In 2008, UCOSEMUN opted to pursue Fairtrade certification and further improve the quality of living for workers in San Rafael, Murra and Quilali, by reinvesting into their processes. Improving the lives of others never tasted so sweet.
