Cerro Azul is steeped in coffee history. It has always been a coffee farm, but it was only after the Mierisch family purchased it in 2011, that its development and quality rapidly improved. They saw the great potential of Honduran coffee and wanted to share the knowledge that they had learned from their homeland Nicaragua, with another country.
This coffee was decaffeinated using the chemical- free C02 process. This process involves submerging the unroasted green coffee in warm pressurised water to open up the bean. Carbon molecules are then added to the water which attract and bind with the caffeine. The great thing about this is that it doesn’t draw out any of the carbohydrates and proteins which are what give the coffee its flavour. The water and carbon dioxide are then removed and the coffee dried. The by-products of this process are completely recycled, with the water filtered and reused while the filtered content is extracted and turned into cow feed.
Espresso: 1:2 coffee to water, extracted in 28-32 sec
Filter: 60-65g coffee per litre of water, brewed for 3-4 mins
Roast & despatch days are currently Monday to Friday. All orders placed after midnight on Thursday will be roasted and despatched on Monday.
We create a new and unique profile for each coffee we roast. Although the profiles are different, our approach is always the same, to highlight and accentuate the flavours created at the farm and mill. This means we don't label our coffees as espresso, filter, dark or light roast. All of our coffees are omni-roast, meant to be delicious however you brew. We believe the heart of speciality is keeping the identity and character of every coffee intact and alive, no matter the brew method.
