    The Profile

    The Profile

    Fans of Capucas, rejoice! We have finally managed to source a worthy replacement to this staple offering at Machina: well-balanced, accessible and easy to work with, it's no wonder it's so beloved.

    Lepaterique is a coffee that goes down really easy, and will set you up for a great day. Expect dominant flavours of milk chocolate and toffee, with a hint of dried fruit sweetness, and a pillowy cashew body. We think this coffee holds up really well brewed in a drip machine or aeropress.

    The Producers

    The Producers

    Lepaterique is grown collectively by a Lenca community, an indigenous people of southwestern Honduras and eastern El Salvador in Central America. Community and collective "ownership" of the land is central to Lenca philosophy, with each member of the community contributing to the upkeep and harvest of it. Most Lenca people live on their farms growing coffee as their main source of income.

    Lepaterique is a small city made up of seven villages located in the Francisco Moraz Region of central Honduras. It's very close to the capital, and surrounded by pine forests and rocky mountains.

    • Wholesale

      We are always looking to work with likeminded businesses to serve our coffee.

      If you're interested in serving this locally roasted Edinburgh coffee as your main offering, a guest appearance or as bags of retail, get in touch with us on  roastery@machina-coffee.co.uk or call (0131) 656 9565.

    • Roasting Schedule

      Your coffee will be roasted within 1-16 days of purchase, with a shelf life of 6 weeks (optimum serving point at 12-36 days old). We recommend letting this coffee rest for at least 12 days before using, in order to release excess gas which can impact the flavour of your cup.

      If you would like your coffee fresh, please leave a note with your order and we will do our best to accommodate.
