THE STORY

The Finca Montevideo comes from the kind of place that makes you want to become a full-time coffee sourcer. From the 1,600 meter slopes of the farm's highest reaches, you can see the Pacific ocean shoreline to the west and a line of breathtaking volcanoes marching off to the east. The cool climate allows for slow maturation, and its rich volcanic soil makes for perfect coffee-growing conditions. The fact that the final product tastes like a hot cocoa mixed with roasted hazelnuts seems appropriate. Beautiful place, beautiful coffee.

Light roasted for drip and press.

BREWING RECOMMENDATIONS

We serve this coffee as both espresso and drip in our shops.  We use 20g ground espresso to produce 40g brewed espresso in 30 seconds.  If you don't have a scale and the espresso is between 7 and 14 days old, just aim for a volume a little over 2 ounces for a double.  Please note this coffee is delicious as straight espresso but can get lost in milk; if you prefer a stronger espresso for milk drinks we recommend using the Blendo Stupendo.Of course, feel free to experiment with the parameters to find your perfect coffee.  If our parameters make the espresso taste sour or bitter to you, just increase your brewed amount a few grams up if it's sour or a few grams down if it's bitter.  For our drip coffee, the parameters vary a little because we use a refractometer to control strength at 1.35% TDS, but if you don't have a refractometer just use about 12 grams of coffee for every 8 ounces of water.  Please contact us with any brewing related questions!
