Coffee Information

About the farmer

A single-farmer microlot from one of our Aldea Development staff members. Gilberto is Aldea's Director of Coffee Quality, Purchasing, and the specialty coffee training program in Honduras, Gilberto has been a vital member of Aldea Development since 2009. Even while wearing so many hats for Aldea, Gilberto produces incredible coffee of his own. Roasted medium-dark, it is both sweet and nutty with a subtle finish.

How to brew

Because of its rich and nutty flavor profile and a smooth finish, we love to brew Gilberto's coffee in the Clever Dripper. The Clever Dripper's combination of immersion and drip brewing technique brings out the delicate nuances of this coffee, and emphasizes its nutty notes. This method ensures a smooth and well-balanced cup that showcases the coffee's rich and satisfying flavors.

Online orders are packaged to ship on Tuesdays and Fridays. No matter when you place your order, it will ship within 4 days.

We are currently roasting full days, Monday through Friday. So, yes! Your coffee should be freshly roasted, and ready to drink upon receiving. Our roastery team is incredibly mindful about ensuring your coffee will be at its best when it arrives to you.

Whew, this is a question! Aldea is different for 3 main reasons. 

First, Aldea grew out of a non-profit organization working in Honduras. Through this relationship, we can purchase coffee directly from the farmer and pay our farmers at a minimum, 50% above fair-trade. 

Second, we roast our coffee in small batches of 15 pounds at a time. This allows us to have more control over our profiles, and maintain consistency batch to batch. 

Third, we became a Certified B Corp in 2020. Certified B Corps are leaders in the global movement for an inclusive, equitable, and regenerative economy. This certification holds us accountable to make the best decisions for our employees, the coffee farmers, and the communities we work in. 

Aldea Coffee is a people-and-planet-before-profit, B Corp. By partnering directly with farmers, roasting specialty coffee, and serving you, we strive to bring the highest level of social and environmental engagement to all the communities in which we work.
