Origin Story:

San Sebastián is an isolated small town located in Lempira, Honduras known its steep mountains and high altitudes. This town has some of the highest altitude coffees growing in all of Honduras, with mountains reaching between 1,700 – 2,000 MASL. Due to the geographic isolation of this coffee and lack of modern infrastructure in the area, farmers in this area have no option but to process their coffee cherries using traditional methods and transport it to export via horseback. 


Our farming team at Finca Terrerito first came across this incredible group of high-altitude farmers in late 2020 right after two hurricanes (Iota and Eta) had just ripped through the country of Honduras and caused detrimental damage to local infrastructure. The Finca T team was in the area providing donations and lending out equipment to help repair damages from the storms and flooding. During this trip, the Finca T team were introduced to the group of 8 farmers that make up our San Sebastian roast and given coffee samples to try. After tasting the coffee and loving it, our farm director, Marcial, returned to the area to visit the San Sebastian coffee farms firsthand and verify their sustainable practices before officially making them a part of our Alma-doption direct trade program. 


Roast Story: 

When this delicious coffee landed at our roastery in Holly Springs, we instantly knew it was something special from the small and dense appearance of the beans. Having a few light roast offerings in our lineup already, we went back and forth on how to best preserve the natural terroir of this delicate and complex coffee. We landed on a light roast profile—not because it was the best fit when looking at our entire lineup—but because it was the best way to bring out the tea like complexity that is truly unique to this coffee.

Understanding Grind Types

Whole Bean

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 ;)

Best For: All Methods

Regular/Keurig (Ground)

This fine-medium grind is perfect for drip machines, keurigs, or aeropresses. It is the most commonly used size, making it a safe option when gifting coffee to a friend or if you are unsure of what grind type to get.

Best For: Drip Machines, Keurig Machines, Aeropress

Chemex (Ground)

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.

Best For: Chemex

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!

If you are looking for espresso fine coffee, please take note that we recommend you purchase an espresso grinder and do not recommend purchasing coffee ground for espresso from us.
