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!

Understanding Grind Types
Maximize your coffee experience by grinding your own whole beans. The flexibility of a grinder allows you to grind fresh and specifically for your brewing device. It's one extra step, but trust us, it is so worth it ;)

For Chemex enthusiasts, the coffee grind is coarser compared to other pour over options. This grind size is ideal due to thicker Chemex filters, which slow down water during extraction.

This medium-coarse grind is ideal for fans of pour overs like the V60. For optimal results, we recommend using with paper filters.
Best For: Pour Overs (Not Chemex)
French Press (Ground)
Perfect for any submersion brewing methods such as the french press or cold brew. This extra coarse grind will be the perfect grind for you!
