Passion is our first ever post roast coffee blend, which essentially means that we roast two coffees separately and then blend them together “post roast” to create the unique profile of Passion. Although our post roast recipe for Passion is a secret, we will spill the beans and assure you that this coffee is an amazing mixture of two of our favorite roasts. Passion is a very approachable cup of coffee that will be sure to please everyone in your household.
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 ours coffee before they make their way here to our roastery 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 in Spanish, and our best guess is that they misspelled the word “Terrenito” (which translates to “little piece of land”) to Terrerito when the land went to be registered. 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, eventually forging the foundations of our farm-to-cup coffee you love today!
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.
