Guatemala La Hermosa (Green Coffee)Mayorga Organics
Grind Types Chart
The freshest and most preferred method for those who have a grinder at home.
Coarse (French Press)
This grind size is what you need to make a mean french press or a smooth well extracted cold brew.
If you are brewing that Mayorga magic on a Chemex this is the grind size for you. This grind is also great for units with metal filters.
If you are brewing on any home brewer or a flat bottom pourover system (Kalita Wave) this is the grind size that was made for you.
This is our favorite size grind for anyone using a cone pourover system with a paper filter (Hario v60, Melitta, Clever, Beehouse). Our baristas call this one, "the sweet spot."
If you are using a vacuum pot, siphon or refillable k-cup pod you want this grind size for optimal brewing.
This grind is suitable for home and commercial espresso machines and stove top espresso, like a moka pot.
SMALL FARMER CO-OP
Recommended Roast: Light
Certification: 100% Organic, Non-GMO verified, Kosher
The soil in Acatenango is rich in nutrients because of the volcanic activity in the area that has taken place for thousands of years. This, along with the implementation of strict organic practices and managing small lots, has allowed La Hermosa Cooperative to focus on quality, while maximizing their yields without using dangerous chemicals.
We are very proud and honored to have been the first direct roaster partner of La Hermosa’s coffee in the US.
