José Alvarado López inherited his love of coffee at the age of 11, when he began working with Octavio Alvarado, one of the first producers in the municipality of San Pedro Copan. Over the past 57 years, José has continued to pass this legacy on to his 6 children and 12 grandchildren. They are now a certified organic farm and contribute to the Capucas cooperative, and continue to grow native varieties such as typica and bourbon. In José's words, "being a coffee producer is a blessing."

Taste Notes: Look for a grapefruit acidity along with sweet, rich notes of maple and custard. Quite unique & absolutely delicious.

About Density Separations: Density grading (sometimes called dry milling), simply put, is the process of separating the heaviest beans from the lighter beans. The more dense the coffee bean, the higher the quality.

With dry milling, we run a density separation on what is already high end specialty grade coffee. We run our separations twice, and in doing so, we separate out the very best of the best beans to roast. Why do we do it? It was our love for coffee-- and our intense drive to taste it in it's absolute perfection-- that led us to the idea of density separating high end specialty coffee.

Imagine a roast of an already incredible coffee where each bean is a "10". The luxury of the absolute best is what we have on offer here. Density separations are very limited exclusives, and they tend to sell out quickly when they become available. Learn more about density separations & watch us in action here.
