In celebration of our 25th anniversary, we have a special selection coffee from one of our oldest and most beloved direct trade partners. This delicious Pacamara varietal lot from the Caballero Family in Marcala, Honduras embodies everything coffee should be: it is the product of a relentless pursuit of quality, persistent innovation, and patient partnership based on shared commitment to continuous improvement. This unique variety was grown among the pine trees at Don Fabio Caballero's highest-elevation farm and is the first time we've offered this coffee and features notes of cacao nibs, cola & Concord grape. We are pairing it with our limited-edition 25th anniversary mug, featuring a collection of doodles and designs from the archives.
Please note, this is a 7oz special selection coffee, available as whole bean only.
How To Brew
We recommend starting with a 1:18 coffee-to-water ratio, which provides an excellent total extraction level and maximizes flavor pulled out of the ground coffee. For our single origin coffees we recommend a pour over method either on a Chemex, V60 or Kalita Wave on a 5 or 6 grind setting if you are ordering from Intelligentsiacoffee.com.
