Oh Ember—our darkest of dark roasts with such a great story! The idea for Ember actually came about from you, our amazing Alma Familia: Last year, we started receiving feedback from dark roast fanatics that our Enchanted was good, but not strong enough for some taste buds. Having a little more preference towards light roasts ourselves, we were taken aback. A roast darker than Enchanted? Challenge accepted!
With your feedback we went to work with the goal of roasting our darkest dark roast without compromising quality and taste. The result? Imagine going camping and waking up to some fresh coffee brewed over that handmade campfire: smooth and bold with a little hint of smokiness.
We can’t end this story without mentioning that this is the only coffee we have with oils on it. The well-developed dark roast does produce noticeable oils that pack a bunch of flavors into your morning cup. Our only warning will be to watch your grinding equipment and purge it/clean it often when enjoying Ember. Any residue left uncleaned for months can change the taste of any other coffees you may want to put through the same equipment, especially if not cleaned properly.
Finca Terrerito (Finca T) is our main Alma Family Farm in Honduras. Founded in the 1960s, this is where we do the bulk of processing and quality control on the coffee before it makes it way to us here in North Georgia. Not only does most of our coffee come from Finca T but it is also where we house all our state-of-the-art equipment. From a water well that goes 400ft into the ground to ensure only the cleanest water for processing, all the way to wet processing, dry processing, and exporting. It all goes down at Finca T!
Finca T was originally purchased in the 1960s by Leticia’s family, it was 200 acres of farmland and was named Finca Terrerito. Funny enough, the word Terrerito is not an actual word and our best guess is that when the land went to be registered they misspelled, the word Terrenito, which translates to “little piece of land” to Terrerito. In 2001, Al Lopez, a co-owner at Alma, purchased Finca T from his mother and begin planting some coffee trees while primarily using the land for cattle. By 2008, Al had dedicated his retirement to improving lives through Finca T in the small town from which he was born and raised.
Today, we are very honored to have built the foundation to this business at Finca T! With only the best equipment and every single step of the process happening under our watchful eyes, we produce a quality of coffee that is truly extraordinary.
