Monkey See Monkey Do
Rainforest Alliance Certified blend consisting of Peruvian and Nicaraguan coffees roasted medium/dark.
This is a smooth caramel tasting coffee. Monkey See Monkey Do is 100% Rainforest Alliance. That means that Zolo pays a higher price for minimal inorganic inputs and fair wages paid at the farm level. A medium roast that lets you see what the Monkeys at Zolo are doing!
