Our final Honduran coffee of 2018 is from a small part of a farm called Cerro Azul. This year has been incredible for Honduran coffee as it has tasted more vibrant and sweeter than ever before. We are already planning next year to share more of the unique character of one of coffees great origins.
Cerro Azul was formerly a farm left to disrepair. But around five years ago, the Mierisch family purchased the farm and transformed it. They spent countless hours building, expanding and teaching. Being established producers from Nicaragua, they brought a wealth of knowledge and experience to Honduras that revolutionised quality on the farm.
We have been fortunate to be working with them for the last three years and the seedlings of new varietals have begun
to blossom. This coffee is one of those varietals. Under the Mierisch families care and guidance, it is now being grown and processed to a remarkably high standard.
Espresso: 1:2 dose to yield, extracted in 28-36 secs
Filter: 0.07:1 coffee to water, brewed in 3-4 mins
Roast days are Tuesdays and Fridays. All orders placed by midnight the day before will be sent out first-class on the roast day.
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.
