Holiday Filter

Holiday Filter



This year's Holiday Filter comes from the producer Oscar Nuez from Honduras.

Oscar Nuez is a young and energetic producer who we are working with for the first time. We hope to set up a Direct Trade relationship with him in the near future. 

Today, more than 100,000 families across Honduras are involved in coffee production. 95% of these are small-scale farmers and 70% farm on fewer than 2 hectares (representing some 30% of the country’s total production). The vast majority of farmers (95% or more) rely on family labour for all aspects of agricultural and harvest labour.

This Pacas variety is fully washed and was grown at approximately 1600 masl. You can expect notes of cherry strudel, redberry jam and almonds, giving the cup exotic representations of the Pacas variety.

For all filter coffees we recommend the following parameters:

  • Brewing ratio: 1g coffee to 16-17g water
  • Slurry temperature (coffee+water): 200 - 205 ̊F / 93 - 96 ̊C
  • Extraction: 20 - 21%
  • TDS 1.38-1.41%
