Finca Los Alpes

This organically certified farm is where we source the lion share of our coffee supply from. It is our house espresso and unlike all our other coffees is never exchanged. It was selected by our founder and Head Roaster Philip Feyer after having visited this estate in Nicaragua.

The coffee is grown in the Cerro Kilambé natural reserve in the district of Jinotega at an altitude of 1800 metres above sea level. The high altitude offers the ideal terroir for coffee cultivation. Both varieties, Caturra and Tipica, which we use in this espresso, are grown sustainably in the cloud forest surrounded by enormous bio-diversity. The green coffee is imported by Jonas Reindl directly to Austria and there are no middle men between the producer Ulrich Salamun and us.

In the coffee industry, direct trade is an approach taken by the specialty coffee industry as it is the most transparent way to buy coffee. Unlike commodity coffee which usually involves a broad range of middlemen and leaves with very little pay and security for the farmers. Fair Trade coffee is slightly better than commodity traded coffee but still comes with many obstacles such as the involvement of more middlemen and less transparency, traceability, and lower margins for the farmers than specialty coffee.

Ulrich Salamun lives in Nicaragua and manages several coffee estates there. He devoted himself to sustainable farming and direct trading over 20 years ago. Through the premiums he has earned by growing specialty coffee, he has made long-term investments in the regional coffee culture, the development of school projects, counseling of other farmers and more. For this reason, Philip Feyer chose and has stayed loyal to this farm as our main partner. We are very proud of this coffee and its transparent supply chain. We established this direct trade many years ago in 2014 and have since then built great relationships with the producers, whilst watching them improve their infrastructure and thereby their coffee quality. This is why we do what we do, because we want to change the way we consume coffee and affect those who work so hard to deliver it to us.

Our coffee is treated with care

Meticulous Quality

We hope to provide our customers with the best and therefore pay close attention to all factors affecting the quality of our coffee. These include cultivar, growing altitude, climate, soil chemistry, harvesting and processing conditions, drying method, storage conditions, transportation, roasting conditions, grind size, brewing water and brewing recipes.

Highly Curated

Each one of our coffees is carefully selected by our roasting team. Before we buy in bulk, we go through many samples from different specialty coffee estates. Often times we are working with the most renowned coffee producers in the world.

Small Batch Roasting

All our coffee is roasted in our Roastery in Westbahnstraße 13, in Vienna. We roast small batches (10kg max) because we have better control over all the parameters that impact the flavour profile and can therefore better guarantee consistency.

Ethically Sourced

We ensure traceability for all our coffees. Our house Espresso from Nicaragua is directly traded without any middle-men and when we go through a wholesaler, complete transparency is a must. We want to provide our customers with the ability to know where their coffee comes from down to the name of each farmer.
