Café de Alturas - Dark roast coffee

Andreas from ØNSK is particularly fond of this dark roasted coffee from Café de Alturas: "It is the obvious coffee to use when I have to serve a larger group, where there are different wishes for the coffee. It is suitable for both milk drinks such as latte and cappuccino, but also as a pure espresso, which I myself am fond of!"

Particularly suitable for:

When you buy ØNSK it is...

Direct trade

We deal directly with the coffee farmers to ensure they are properly paid for the hard work they put into producing high quality coffee.

Forest grown coffee

The coffee is grown in the shade of other trees, which has a number of advantages: more absorption of CO2, more biodiversity, a healthier soil that does not require pesticides, and not least a better tasting coffee.

Freshly roasted coffee

When you order coffee from ØNSK, it is always freshly roasted and of high quality. We roast the coffee every week and have a promise that we will not ship coffee that is more than 21 days from the roasting date.

100% hand-picked coffee

All coffee is hand-picked, which is your guarantee of high quality. This means that only the best and ripest berries have been picked.

The story behind Café de Alturas

The drive to the Café de Alturas coffee cooperative is long and winding. The cooperative consists of 98 coffee farms growing some spectacular coffees in the Nicaraguan mountains.

The coffee produced in this area is called Café de Alturas. Translated it means coffee from the heights and the name could not be more appropriate. Up here the air is thin, but the coffee trees grow well and are filled with fat berries. The perfect conditions for the production of quality coffee.

Indeed, in the lush mountainous area around the town of San Rafael del Norte, Café de Alturas makes a concerted effort to promote quality. The cooperative has built a development lab, where the farmers’ coffee is tasted and quality-determined, and they are also financing the training of the coffee farmers and farm developments.

Even though the coffee production is the main focus, we are always greeted with great hospitality when we visit the area. And obviously we are always offered the coffee that the people in San Rafael del Norte are so rightly proud of.
