Form meets function in the classically beautiful Chemex brewer. Grind size is critical when brewing with this method since the brew bed can get large. Use a coarser grind to experience bright and floral fruit notes.

Sourcing & Processing

Mapache Coffee is a fifth-generation company of coffee producers, owned and managed by Jan-Carlo and Sofia Handtke in the Apaneca Ilamatepec mountain range of El Salvador. Mapache maintains a strong commitment to the well-being of the coffee forests, ensuring that every farm has a canopy protecting the coffee plants and soil.

Las Peñas gesha is their most exclusive coffee. Each cherry is hand picked at its optimal ripeness and carefully processed. The cherries are slow dried in movable raised beds allowing them to be relocated multiple times a day to keep them in the perfect mix of shade and sun. This brings out the delicate fruit and floral flavors of the gesha variety and adds a unique touch of vanilla and brown sugar sweetness.
