Our recipes

These recipes reflect the approach to coffee served in our Showroom.
The filter recipe is based on our own april Brewers (flat-based) and our april Paper Filters. As for espresso, the recipes are designed using a Modbar AV.
All of our grind settings reference a Ditting Sweet Lab 804. You can adjust your grind settings as necessary and use the recommended brew time as a reference.

About the farm

El Morito is located in the small village Morales, municipality of Mataquescuintla, in the department of Jalapa.
With an elevation from 1400 to 2200 m, 98 hectares of the total 672 hectares of the farm are dedicated to coffee, with an incredible natural forest all around the estate.

The farm works with many varieties of coffee, but they give priority to the ones that especially thrive in the climate and conditions of the area. They work with Pache San Ramon, Catuaí, Bourboon, Maragogipe, Pacamara, Maracatu and Geisha.
