Aldea is partnering with the Muskegon Art Museum to promote their summer art exhibit, “John Steuart Curry: Weathering The Storm”. To celebrate this partnership, we are releasing a collaboration blend created by Aldea’s head roaster, Scott Dorsch, in collaboration with staff from the Muskegon Museum of Art.

Inspired by John Steuart Curry’s “Tornado Over Kansas,” this blend mirrors the red and white highlights of the famous painting with notes of toasted coconut and strawberry, yet finishes with a comforting rich chocolate. What better solace than a chocolate-covered strawberry?

John Steuart Curry: Weathering The Storm exhibition will be going on at the Muskegon Museum Of Art from May 23rd to September 2nd, 2024.

Coffee Information

Partnership Blends

Weathering The Storm" is a blend of coffees from three individual microlot farmers from La Union, Honduras.

How to brew

With notes of toasted coconut and strawberry, yet finishes with a comforting rich chocolate, this blend is well-suited for brewing with a Chemex. The Chemex's extra thick filter ensures a full, clean, and bright extraction, emphasizing the nuanced flavors of toasted coconut and strawberry, while providing a smooth finish that highlights the rich chocolate undertones.

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

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.

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.
