    Brew Method:

    We recommend an espresso or Aeropress. Try the following out for an Aeropress:

    • Ratio: 1 to 13
    • 17 grams of relatively fine ground coffee
    • 221 grams of hot water
    • Total brew time: 3 minutes
  • Farmlevel Story

    Farmlevel

    This cup also delivers a pause for reflection and remembrance. Amado Fernandez recently passed away after battling stomach cancer. We remember his extraordinary coffee along with a special relationship that has lasted throughout the years.

    Amado’s farm, named after his father "Don Amado," is situated alongside Lake Yojoa where the Santa Barbara mountains stretch a few thousand meters above sea level. The success of coffee production is highly influenced by the environment. This special location creates a microclimate of warm, humid air, keeping daytime temperatures from exceeding 70 degrees F. In the evening, a layer of fog rolls in dropping temperatures as low as 53 degrees F. The temperature change causes the coffee cherries to go into a stressed state which helps them to absorb maximum sugars. This promotes a sweeter cup.

    Don Amado produced some of Honduras' best coffees and was awarded First Place in the 2010 Cup of Excellence and Sixth Place in 2013.
