Behind the Scenes
We source this warming coffee from the Poder Femenino farm and the San Rafael farm in Los Limos, Honduras. The latter of these is owned by Norma Iris Fiallos and located in Copan, the most famous of Honduras’s six main coffee-growing regions. Norma is a creative, forward-thinking coffee producer and harvests an unmissable variety of coffee varietals. You’ll find her San Rafael farm located in pine forests, which give truly unique coffees thanks to their acidic soil. This coffee is also shade grown, which slows down the plants’ growth rate to give you a more complex, flavourful cup. It’s kinder to the surrounding wildlife, too.
Norma’s coffee is always wash processed at the Aruco mill. Positioned 800 meters above sea level, the mill enjoys a dry, stable climate which helps create stellar coffees again and again. The washed process is the best way to taste a coffee in its true light. Rather than adding fruity flavours, which can sometimes be the case with other processing methods, the washed process gives us bright cups with crystal clarity.
Scores on the Doors
Before we source and roast our coffees, they are given a quality score. To find the quality score of a coffee, the cupping process is used. The quality score determines if a coffee can be given the ‘speciality’ title. A coffee only becomes speciality grade coffee if it is given a score of 80 points or above. Take a look at coffee cupping to find out the process each coffee goes through.
We’re very happy to say that when it comes to roasting, we never ‘over roast’. The roasting process gives us the canvas to bring out the natural flavours and aromas from our coffees. If we were to roast a coffee too dark, we would be masking these naturally occurring delicious flavours and, instead, bring out more burnt and bitter flavours. Our coffees are of such a high grade; we never need to hide anything they hold within, allowing us the scope to show each coffee off to its full potential.
All of our coffees are very different from each other. Some are bursting with notes of chocolate and nut, while others hold more fruity flavours. These awesome, naturally occurring flavours are all thanks to the hard-working coffee farmers and their workers across the globe. We ensure we do them justice by roasting these coffees to show them off perfectly.

Why buy speciality coffee from us?
Not only do our coffees taste awesome, but they do awesome things too. We pay between 30 and 150% more than ‘going rate’ for our green beans. This goes some way to thanking the coffee farmers for their hard work and amazing product. With the extra revenue, the farmers have a higher chance of a successful harvest next year. They also have more to invest in better practices throughout the farm and better living conditions.
By keeping the supply chain as short as possible, there is less to pay out of the pot. This means the farmers receive more, as they should.
So grab a bag of coffee and make a difference.
