The idea behind our Shop Filter is a simple one, a people pleasing sweet and reliable coffee that doesn't break the bank. Whether you brew in a french press, with a pour over or on a stovetop, we wanna offer some beans that fit easily with any routine. Picture sipping on a good old cup of Joe when you're wrenching away on your classic cars, old bikes or coffee machines (you all do that for fun as well right?).
The coffee itself will change on a seasonal basis, showcasing origin, processing and terroir with the same levels of traceability you're used to from us.
This first edition of our Shop Filter is a washed Honduras from the western Opalaca region. Produced by the Comicovel coop, a collection of smallholder producers who farm organically with an overall focus on environmental sustainability. They formed in 2016 out of the Catholic Relief Services' Blue Harvest Project, which improves agroforestry management throughout Central America. Thanks to these extensive efforts, the Opalaca mountain range, which is known as a generally arid and dry region, preserves enough humidity to successfully grow enough coffee in the region.
In the cup, we're tasting a rich dark chocolate sweetness, with a subtle citrus acidity followed by a lovely almond finish.
