The idea for Frio first came about in the record-breaking hot summer of 2020. If you were anything like us, we imagine you were spending too much time under quarantine at home and forcing yourself outside to get some fresh air despite the hot temperatures. Here in Georgia, the heat got us into a cold brew craze which also made us obsessed with searching for what makes a perfect cup of cold brew.
The fun thing about cold brew is that you can make it with any coffee—yes that is right, ANY of our coffees on the catalog can be made into a delicious cold brew, but Frio is a special post roast blend crafted to be that perfect hot summer cold brew cup. For this blend, we took two coffees from Finca La Unica, a natural process and a wet wash, roasted them to perfection, and then perfectly blended them together. The end result? A deliciously balanced cup of cold brew with traditional chocolate and nut notes and an underlying complexity of natural fruit.
Finca La Unica was the second coffee farm added to the Alma Family Farms lineup. Leticia, one of the co-owners of Alma and a 5th generation coffee farmer is very proud of Finca La Unica for it’s high altitude, beauty, and strategic harmonious coffee growing amongst nature. When Leticia first took over La Unica, most of the land had been used for cattle grazing. With the help of the amazing farm team, this farm has blossomed to include perfectly aligned rows of coffee trees, strategically placed shade trees, and wild fruit and fauna to be found throughout. Finca La Unica truly is picture perfect!
