Created with the intention to showcase three different coffee processing methods and create the ultimate espresso blend for milke and black coffee. Washed, Honey, and Natural are the 3 main processing methods used to get the coffee from cherry to seed and each offer unique flavours and characteristics.

We have worked with Mexican producer group Flor de Corazon for three harvests now. These farmers in Oaxaca are responsible for producing our Honey and Natural coffees that go into Firebird. Working exclusively with a producer group means we can commit to those farmers, paying above market prices and help directly improve their communities.

2023 saw some exciting developments for these farmers, with Caravela Coffee, our main import partner, completing construction of their wet mill, which will result in more consistent processing and sorting. Exciting stuff for all parties involved!

COMPONENTS

Mexico: flor de corazon - NATURAL 20%
MEXICO: FLOR DE CORAZON - HONEY 30%
Nicaragua: La Estrella - Washed 50%
ESPRESSO RECIPE
USE A RATIO OF AROUND 1:2.1 (coffee to water) and aim for a shot time of 28-31 seconds.

FOR EXAMPLE
Dose 20g of coffee and aim for a total of 40-44g of espresso in 28 seconds.
