The story behind our coffee. Or how a little stone fruit in the uplands of Honduras becomes the soul of a drink.

Clear goal: no compromises

Ten years ago, we were told that if we wanted to produce a cold coffee to go, we would have to compromise. If there was one thing we knew, it was that we were prepared to do anything – except compromise. Especially when it comes to selecting our coffee in Honduras. Deep river valleys, nutrient-rich soils and a moderate tropical climate is where our arabica beans slowly ripen, at 1,000 metres above sea level.

Hand picked

In addition to the growing conditions, a careful harvest greatly influences a coffee’s flavour. The farmers always laboriously harvest the bright red berries by hand, around the turn of the year. They pick each coffee berry individually and skilfully twist it off of the stalk. Ideally, the berries receive further processing within five hours of being picked. If this doesn’t happen, they start to ferment and lose flavour. Years of experience have given our coffee farmers a keen eye, so they only pick evenly ripe berries.

Dried by the sun

The berries are dried in the sun immediately after harvesting. Our coffee farmers spread the berries out on large screen tables. The screen tables are positioned under purpose-built tents or light-permeable roofs. This batch drying for two weeks prevents the formation of undesirable acids. This results in the unmistakeable aroma of LATTESSO beans.

Roasted by eye

The coffee beans reach Bern after a sea journey to Europe lasting several weeks. We take receipt of them in the Holligen district, near Blasercafé. Blaser’s specialists use a sophisticated process to roast the beans. For the final quality check, they use their most reliable tools – their eyes and their noses.
