Power to the Press – AeroPress Box Light
We had so much fun with the online Power to the Press event, we hope you did too. We have some AeroPress Boxes left, but no posters anymore. So this is the limited edition light: With a great coffee, a sticker, a skimmer and some goodies from the sponsors..
With the power of the community we help the farmers Yonal and Imelda, by donating €4 for every box sold to El Laurel. With this money, Yonal will invest in fermentation tanks and equipment for his drying beds.
Who is this box for?
Anyone and everyone all over the world who loves the AeroPress and wants to get their hands on this awesome box and help support Yonal and Imelda.
We couldn’t have done all of this without our wonderful sponsors. Because of their support, we are able to cover a large portion of the costs, which in turn means we can donate more to Yonal and Imelda. So, a big shout out and a huge thank you to:
- Brita Nederland
- La Marzocco NL
- Kinu Grinder
The story – the farm
This microlot is made from a coffee (variety) which is quite a mystery. While some refer to it as a resistant Bourbon, others call it a tall Catimor. This lot is produced by Yonal and his wife Imelda on their farm El Laurel in the village El Vencedor. They established their farm 7 years ago to continue their family tradition of coffee farming. In 2019 they were introduced to specialty coffee and have become intrigued about improving their quality ever since. They started to harvest their varieties separately, to pick more ripe cherries and have installed solar dryers. The result of their hard work is excellent.
The farm is located in a very humid district, which offers fertile soils and has in general very favourable conditions for (specialty) coffee production. While rain and humidity are great for the production of coffee it causes a lot of problems in drying the parchment. That’s why we want to help them invest in new drying beds, among other things.
What’s in the box?
- A bag of a kickass microlot coffee from Yonal and Imelda from the El Laurel farm in Colonsay, Peru. El Laurel is situated 1800 meters above sea level, making for a wonderfully sweet and juicy coffee with some delicious berry flavours
- A custom beer skimmer that can be used for stirring your coffee or skimming your beer. Win-Win, and a must-have during any AeroPress Championship (real or at home)
- A cool sticker and some awesome goodies from our sponsors
