IT ALL STARTS AT THE COFFEE FARM
San Vicente started exporting coffee in 2001 and was the fulfillment of Fidel Paz’ father, Cantalicio Paz’s dream of having a successful coffee farm. Since the initial export, the coffee has become famous for its quality and consistency. This is attributed to the excellent volcanic soil, microclimate provided by the proximity of Lake Yojoa, and the meticulous nature of the quality control experts at San Vicente.

HOW DID WE ROAST THIS COFFEE?
This coffee is being roasted by Dave H. from Dec 8th to Dec 29th, 2019 at Pulley Collective in Red Hook, Brooklyn. We typically use the Loring S35 Kestrel roaster for this profile - this roaster roasts the beans through convection (heated air) roasting. We have strict guidelines for each of the coffee profiles, and this roast has to pass the development time ratio test as measured in real-time by the roasting software, Cropster. Once it does, it is approved for production.
We perform Quality Control via a process of coffee tasting called cupping on all of our production roasts twice a week at our facility in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Cupping is attended by Q-certified cupper Ian T., roaster Dave H.and founder Suyog M. All coffees are evaluated on a scoring scale of 0 to 3.
- 3.0 = exceptional roast - exceeds expectations
- 2.5 = on par with profile - matches expectations
- 2.0 = good roast, but 1 or 2 elements could be improved - needs improvement
- 1.5 or lower = failed - do not ship
