About the recipe
We used the Victoria Arduino Eagle One Prima and the Mythos MYG75 grinder to create this recipe for you. Try to replicate this recipe on your equipment or create your very own.
The dose is the amount of ground coffee that goes into the filter basket of your portafilter. Filter baskets come in different sizes. The size of your portafilter determines how much coffee (fill weight) it can hold. You don’t want to overfill or underfill the basket, as it will compromise the extraction.
The yield is how much delicious coffee you extract or, in order words, ends up in your cup.
And because you may have a different basket size than ours, you want to use a yield based on your dose and the given extraction ratio.
The extraction time tells you if the water has enough time to extract all the tasty goodness in the coffee. Adjusting your grind size will help you to achieve the suggested time in our recipe. You want to grind finer if you extract a yield in a shorter time. And grind coarser if you achieve the yield in a longer time than suggested.

Women Growers Program - ARGCAFE
This super tasty Colombian coffee has been produced by women’s coffee growers’ of the ARGCAFEE ‘Association de Transformadores y Comercializadores de Cafe Especiales de Argelia Cauca’ located in Agelia, Colombia's Cauca region.
Seventeen smallholder farmers joined forces and founded the association in 2014 to better access markets for their coffees. ARGCAFEE now has 230 members, amongst them many women.
ARGCAFEE is part of an international women's Coffee Producer project by our partner Café Imports that attempts to recognise and promote the work women do growing and producing coffee worldwide. The program aims to address the widespread wage inequity that women experience by adding a gender-equity premium on top of a base price. This premium is paid directly to the growers.
Our social projects
We create opportunities.
We know, that together we are creating better opportunities for women and their families. That’s why we source 40% of our coffees directly from women's coffee growers. And we reinvest funds in social projects that create a profound change in our coffee growing communities. and fund projects that advance women.
