    The coffees from Los Tres Potros clearly stand out every year - the farm produces outstanding coffees and has been awarded the Cup of Excellence several times for this.

    The Pacamara beans were processed 'Natural'. The coffee comes with a high sweetness of milk chocolate as well as a medium acidity reminiscent of pineapple. The silky mouthfeel is accompanied by a sweet and simple finish.

    Choose your grind

    If you don't have a grinder at home, we'll happily grind your coffee to your specifications. Just select your brewing method above or order whole beans.

    Find the right grind. You can get the most out of your coffee by grinding your beans just before brewing. Take a look at the equipment selection if you are interested in a grinder.

    You can also select a grind level in each product if you want us to grind the beans for you. We use a Mahlkönig EK43 for this.

    Frenchpress and Aeropress are ground on the same setting.

    About the coffee

    Our Los Tres Potros coffee (which means "The three Colts" - but more on that later) is a flavourful stunner that very much deserves the Cup of Excellence award.

    The Pacamara variety is a cross between the Pacas and Maragogype varieties. It was created in 1958 in El Salvador. Pacamara combines the best characteristics of these two varieties. It is characterised by particularly large, red cherries with a fruity, chocolaty taste. The Pacas variety is a natural mutation of the well-known Bourbon bean, while the Maragogype is a mutation of the Typica variety, which was first discovered in Brazil. It is also called "elephant bean" because its plants produce large leaves and beans.

    The Pacamara is a costly Arabica variety that requires a lot of care. But the effort is worth it: Los Tres Potros produces incredibly clear coffees, with fine, balanced aromas and a concise character. With these flavour profiles - creamy textures, tropical fruit nuances and sweet highlights - they also scored at the El Salvador Cup Of Excellence 2018.

    Bloody Good Coffee

    - SINCE 2002

    Bloody Good Filter

    Coffee is a fruit which is naturally acidic and contains many sugars. We roast our filter coffees to bring out this acidity and develop the natural sweetness.

    In developing a profile for a filter roast, our roasting team takes a light-handed approach, roasting much more gently than in an espresso roast. Here, the aim is to respect and highlight the natural flavours of the coffee itself, and to let its terroir shine through.
