Fuerza FAQs

Where do you source your coffee beans?

Our beans are sourced directly from women farmers. We are currently working with women coffee producers associated with Cooperativa Cafe Capucas in Honduras.

What is the roasting profile of these beans?

Our roasting practice is one of highlighting the coffee's characteristics of origin. These characteristics are influenced by varietal, growing elevation, soil makeup, shade, wet and dry processing, bean moisture content, etc. All these variables will dictate how we roast the beans so that they have the optimal brew strength and flavor profile when brewed. 

That said, we don't necessarily roast in a light, medium or dark roast kind of way. But based on the variables mentioned above, the beans themselves may fall in those shades when roasted. We evaluate them in a cupping/tasting process to eventually profile the roast.

What is the cost of shipping?

The cost of shipping is calculated through United States Postal Service (USPS) rates, based on your order and address. All orders of $100 or more ship free to U.S. addresses. 

When is the coffee roasted?

As of 2019 our coffee is roasted on Thursdays and ships out Fridays and Saturdays.

When is the last day to order?

As of 2019 the last day to order coffee is on Tuesdays so that we can roast your order fresh and send out by the end of the week. 

Recommended Brew Ratios 

We recommend the following brew ratios:

1:15 for Pour Over

1:17 for Auto Drip

1:10 for French Press

These ratios are based on coffee:water in grams.

For example, for a Pour Over, if you use 30 grams of coffee you would use 450 grams of water.
