Coffee is a crop and inherently it will be different every single year. This could not be truer with our honey and natural processes. Each year our specialty processes change and each year we find a new roast that will highlight and suit that coffee the best way possible. We typically lean closer to a light roast with these processes to really bring out the natural terroir of the coffees. We recommend these coffees for those who are open to an untraditional cup of coffee! Honeys and Naturals will have more of a juiciness to them and a tea like body, unlike the more traditional coffee/chocolate notes. All this being said, we highly recommend pushing your coffee boundaries and trying out one of these delicious and uncommon coffees!
Finca La Unica was the second coffee farm added to the Alma Family Farms lineup and also where the beans of our Honey Process roast are grown and harvested each year. Leticia, one of the co-owners of Alma and a 5th generation coffee farmer, is the owner of Finca La Unica, and she is very proud of its high altitude, beauty, and sustainable coffee growing practices that respect and preserve Finca La Unica’s natural surroundings. When Leticia first took over La Unica, most of the land had been used for cattle grazing; However, with the help of the amazing farm team, Finca La Unica has blossomed to include perfectly aligned rows of coffee trees, strategically placed shade trees, and wild fruit and fauna to be found throughout. It is truly a picture perfect coffee farm!
Leticia wanted to take advantage of Finca La Unica’s high altitude and decided to do something that had never been done by the Finca T team before: experiment with Honey and Natural Processing. So, we began consulting with agronomists and the Honduran Coffee Institute (IHCAFE) until we finally began tasting processing results we were proud of.
Today, our honey and natural processing story has made leaps and bounds from its genesis. With new processing facilities and dry milling equipment to ensure consistent quality, we have perfected our practices taste the improvement each and every coffee harvest. You can learn more about how our family farms process honey and natural coffees in our full-length coffee processing guide here.

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.

Pour Over (Ground)
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!
