Coffee Information

About the farmer

Walberto has had his own coffee farm since 2019, and has been selling his coffee to Aldea Coffee since 2022. Walberto’s father has been farming coffee for as long as Walberto can remember, so he has been involved in coffee production since he was a child.

CHEMEX 6-Cup Brewer - Aldea Coffee

How to brew

With sweet and nuanced medium notes of hazelnut, black cherry, and chocolate, we love brewing Walberto's coffee in a Chemex brewer. The Chemex's thick filter helps to extract the coffee's flavors fully, while eliminating any bitterness. This results in a clean and crisp cup that highlights the sweetness of hazelnut, the fruity undertones of black cherry, and the rich depth of chocolate notes in the coffee. The Chemex's slow, controlled pour allows for a precise extraction, ensuring a balanced and nuanced flavor profile.

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.
