"My start in coffee goes way back, I grew up on my parent's farm, where I was raised and have always lived surrounded by my coffee trees" - Fabian.

The Rojas family has cultivated coffee at Finca Guyubito for decades, but it was around 2010 when Fabian began to realise there was real progression to be made. "Before we processed our coffee, we believed that our coffee was good, but the truth is we never really had any feedback on it". Since then he's skilled up, replaced varietals, built a cupping lab on the farm and jumped ahead of the curve with experimental processing.

We first bought coffee from Fabian back in the summer of 2021, it was by far the best thing we'd touched. This year we have 4 lots from him, they are all incredible.

Before washing, Fabian’s processed this lot with a 2 stage fermentation, 24 hours with the fruit intact, then 48 hours pulped and sealed in airtight tanks. The result is a mad nice Castillo!

Coffee FAQ

Does your coffee come as whole bean or ground?

We only sell whole bean coffee. This is to ensure you make the best cup possible and a big part of that is grinding the coffee just before using it.

If you're in need of a grinder, head to our brewing store.

What's the difference between espresso and filter roast?

We profile most of our coffees for both espresso and filter. In basic terms, espresso coffee is often more developed and slightly darker than a filter roast. This varies with each coffee and in general we roast our coffee to what is considered a light/modern profile. Which one is best for you depends on your intended brewing method.

You can search by brew type on our shop.

Is your coffee roasted to order?

We roast multiple times throughout the week and dispatch online orders twice per week (at minimum). Due to the way we roast coffee, we recommend a minimum rest period of 10 days before brewing.
