The coffee story
The entire fruits that envelop the coffee must be placed in a hermetically closed space, usually a stainless steel tank, although plastic tanks or even bags do the job just as well, as long as the oxygen can be eliminated and the container (or bags) can be filled with CO2. While the coffee is fermenting, bacteria decompose the sugar to turn it into CO2 and alcohol. Once sufficient CO2 has been generated, the pressure within the hermetically closed space will increase. Therefore, a valve needs to be installed, to decrease the pressure without letting oxygen enter the tank or space. The duration of this fermentation process can last anywhere between a couple of hours to a few days. THE CO2 prolongs the fermentation process because it slows down the decomposition of the sugars, which allows for unusual flavors to develop inside the coffee grains, without the vinegar-like flavors of classic fermentation processes. The PH also evolves more slowly, which means there will be less acidity from the alcohol. The temperature as well as the time of fermentation play key roles. Of course, with the right practice and experience, you can master and control these variables to optimize results.

Cafesmo Ocotepeque Honduras
We, the 250+ members who together form Cafesmo, have formalized our cooperation in 2016. Our individual fincas are relatively small, most of them ranging from 2 to 12 hectares. All our fincas are FTO certified and we offer an array of specialty profiles. Our region - Ocotepeque - is known for its rich soil and perfect altitude range to grow unique, richly flavored coffees. We are convinced that Mercedes and Ocotepeque will continue to gain in fame over the next few years, and deservedly so. Most of our finca’s are located between 1,200 and 1,600 meters. Thanks to a varied topography, we have a long harvest season, that starts late October and lasts until March. Varieties include Pacas, Lempira, Parainema, Catuaí, Obatá, Colombia, IHCAFE90… We have young people as well as less young members, women and men, someone who is a microbiologist, and one who has been an elementary school teacher. Together, we stand for ‘diversity and quality’, together we stand strong

Average orders per roaster
Once the ordering period ends we will consolidate all coffees in a shared container. During transport, your coffee is fully insured. We will keep you informed about the shipment status.
Upon arrival of the coffee at the warehouse, you can choose between 2 delivery modes:
- Doorstep delivery: We will take care of transport to your roastery. We will provide your coffee fully insured until it is ready for unloading from the truck at your roastery.
- EXW (ex. warehouse) means that we will provide the coffee ready for pick-up at the terminal of the warehouse. You are responsible for organising transport and insurance from the warehouse to your roastery.
Currently, we can deliver coffee anywhere in Europe, except Hungary. For all European buyers, the coffee will be provided custom cleared in any case. Roasters in Switzerland choosing EXW will be responsible for customs clearance.
When calculating price, you can select your preferred currency: USD, CHF, EUR, or GBP.
2 payment methods are accepted on Algrano:
1. Buy now, pay later
Pay your coffee after its delivered in Europe. This option generates an additional fee, displayed in the shopping cart.
3. Pay 10 days after placing the order
