Behind the Beans

The Scarlet Macaw is the striking national bird of Honduras, the origin of this delicious coffee.

We're temporarily featuring a new-to-us supplier for our Scarlet Macaw. These beans come from the western part of Honduras, Pacavita, which is surrounded by biological reserves and mountain ranges. The rainy season there results in beautiful cherries, and the clear dry season during harvest allows producers to sun dry coffees
once they are washed. The high-altitude weather, rich clay soil, and warm sun ensure that the integrity and quality of the beans is preserved from start to finish.

Two primary producers contributed to this lot, Silvestre Vasquez and Joel Lopez. Silvestre is always pushing for a better quality and has expanded his farm into higher altitudes of a mountain called Pico Congolon which is surrounded by the Reserva Biologica de Opalaca and Reserva Biologica Volcan Pacavita. Joel Lopez is a fourth-generation coffee producer. He runs the farm Los Lesquines, where his family began growing coffee in 1865. The farm produces mainly Bourbon, Caturra and Catuai varieties, with a total of 67 hectares in production.

Grind Types Explained
Why Does Grind Type Matter?
 
Grind size affects the extraction rate of the coffee and therefore affects the flavor of the final brew. Because of the water flow rate and pressure variations between brew methods, different grind sizes suit different brew methods better. You'll want to pick the right one for optimum flavor.

What do I need to know about shipping chocolate?
Shipping chocolate is a delicate adventure - especially in summer.

Our chocolate is especially vulnerable to the effects of temperature fluctuation because we avoid the use of all stabilizers, preservatives, and fillers.

Our summer shipping protocol is currently in place:

  • We only ship chocolate on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays. Orders placed between Thursday and Sunday will ship the following Monday.

  • We occasionally make the tough call to postpone shipping on hot days. We will always update you accordingly.

  • We recommend all chocolate orders are sent by USPS Priority Mail Express.

  • We cannot offer refunds on chocolate shipped during the summer using USPS Ground or USPS Priority Shipping.

  • While we can only offer refunds to customers who have selected USPS Priority Mail Express shipping for their chocolate, please contact us if you are unhappy in any way with your order and we’ll do what we can to make it right.

See our FAQ page for more details on chocolate and temperature!
