Estrella Divina is a neat communal producer
project from La Coipa, Peru organized
by Origin Coffee Lab. The project brings
together small-holder farmers in the same
region, providing training resources and
financing for their farms in addition to
organizing a communal lot composed of
the top-performing coffees. The farms are
generally small, family-owned operations
with 1-2 hectares in production. They process
their own coffee on-site in micro-beneficios
and dry either on patios or in parabolic
driers. Most of the farmers organize
communal harvesting days, helping their
neighbors with picking and processing ripe
cherries in return for the same help on their
own farms. It’s a very cool concept that’s
generating some great coffees - and we’re
glad our friends at Nordic Approach helped
bring this coffee to the states!</p><p>
Since this lot comes from multiple farmers

in the La Coipa region, it’s a good cross-
section of the flavors and varietals that are

most common there. We’re tasting a rich,
caramel sweetness that permeates the
entire cup - it’s a smooth sipping coffee
for sure. There’s a bit of brightness and
a touch of berry tones, perhaps due to
a few of the contributing farmers trying
some different fermentations during processing. It’s a
unique lot of specialty coffee that highlights
the communal aspect of the beans - we
hope you’ll keep the spirit alive by sharing a
brew with a fellow coffee lover!

Wow

Holy s#$! this is good coffee! Definitely picking up on the pervasive and lingering caramel sweetness. There's a hint of bright acidity and some really interesting berry notes coming through to add complexity. Lovers of the classic roast series will likely especially love Estrella Divina. Bold yet smooth flavors with no bitterness. Rewards those who attend to the flavors without demanding your attention. Loving this coffee.

Estrella Divina was delicious

I made a few cups with frothed milk and some caramel syrup and was loving it with a Concha in the morning

Fantastic!

If I had to pick one coffee to drink every day forever this would be it... Silky smooth and rich with complex aroma. Just outstanding in every single way! Divine star this one is...

Decent.. super smooth

A little too soft/smooth— but still enjoyable.

A refreshing change from burnt main stream coffee

This was the first and certainly not the last selection I will be trying from your establishment. I am not as descriptive with my words as some seem to be in other comments, but i will try. I found the taste pleasing and smooth. If I had a choice the "acidity" was a bit much for me, but there was no bitterness or bite afterward which I expected though was very pleased did not come.

Divina is divine! Coffee lovers who enjoy the subtle taste of light roasts will really delight in these beans. The bright, almost juicy berry top and smooth caramel base create a delicious cup, no matter how you brew it. If you're tired of burnt bean bitterness, give this light roast a try. It's like discovering light grade maple syrup after years of tasting the darker stuff. Best of all, Moustache subscribers can expect something different to try every two weeks: no coffee boredom here!

Blown Away

I'm absolutely blown away with how delicious this coffee is. I'm not really someone you'd call a coffee "connoisseur", since my palate is really more experienced with higher proof brown drinks... but you can really get a nose and taste of blackberry from this one. I don't pick up too much of the caramel, but this is a very bold and smooth brew.

Good flavour

I enjoyed the taste and I was able to find the fruity notes in it. A little too smooth for my taste, but that depends more on personal preference. Recommended for those who like to have a very soft coffee with noticeable fruity flavors in it.

Estrella Divina

Love this coffee and the Moustache Coffee Club. Im new here and the beans are freshly roasted and delieveried. I also got the Aeropress and I've been experimenting and I love the inverted method. If you haven't tried this check out the "how to brew" section on the Moustache Website. There are also tons of YouTube videos with great recipes.

Glad to hear you're using the "How to Brew" section Michael! A corner of the site that needs some more love for sure - anything you'd like to see us do an article on, or any questions you have?

Good cup of coffee!

Estrella Divina is a solid coffee. No bitterness in the coffee whatsoever, and I really like the berry / caramel notes. Although, the flavors are not as bold as some other Moustache coffees I've had. Overall, another great selection by Moustache!

Bright, smooth, but bold

This is my second coffee from MCC and I can say I really enjoy it. I am a dark roast/espresso bean lover, but the subtle notes of cherry/berry aroma blend well with the medium roast. The acidity note is there, but more of a bright flavor. This coffee was great but I prefer something deeper/darker for an everyday blend
