about this coffee
This summer, Ambros has the privilege of carrying coffee from both Fidencio Castillo and his son-in-law, acclaimed producer, Frank Torres; married to his daughter, Francy, an agronomist and respected coffee farmer in her own right.
The Castillo family are coffee pioneers, as Finca El Pedregal is one of the first farms to produce coffee in Arboleda. Most residents here were initially weary of growing coffee due to the low temperatures in this area ranging from 10-12 degrees Celsius. Despite this challenge, the farm has access to many valuable resources such as the Juanambú stream which makes it a great location for producing high quality coffees. An ecosystem of different trees at El Pedregal also draw from this stream and work together to preserve the soil and protect the plantation from harsh winds. Fidencio Castillo has a long history in coffee farming. He initially started with only 1500 Caturra and Colombia coffee trees, but with the help of his family, his farm now has over 20,000 healthy coffee trees in production. Under the influence of their father’s passion for coffee, 3 of Fidencio’s daughters (including star producer Francy, Frank Torres' wife) went to study agronomy and food processing-related degrees. Their ambitions were driven by the motivation to find new techniques for coffee processing. The family’s coordinated efforts to produce high-quality, unique coffees again this season is exciting for us and we are more than happy to share them with all of you.
This washed Caturra drinks easy, while offering nuance, complexity, and fruit notes that remind us of orange, lime, apple and subtle white tea.

How to care for your coffee
How to care for your coffee
Coffee is a natural product that degasses over time, losing flavour and complexity. Store your coffee in a cool, dry, dark place to optimize freshness.

Roasted fresh in Montréal, Canada
We work with industry-leading Probat machines and state-of-the-art coffee roasting software. Specialty roasting is built on data, information, understanding and control of the elements; a more targeted approach that aims for consistency in the pursuit of perfection.
... as Jules said in the film. Love the flavour profile of this one, and the edgy names of their coffees too. I appreciate the detailed notes that Ambros leaves regarding their roasting approach. I had mine ground for french press by Dreamy. Using James Hoffman's technique. Very pleased with the results.
As fans of dark roasted, full bodied coffee, we've tried many different brands/suppliers, and have happily settled on two Ambros products that we alternate. The Dark Roast Pulp Fiction and Enzo the Baker. They both provide a fantastic intense coffee flavour and aroma, however go down very smoothly. It's fantastic in a cup of espresso, but also makes great milk-based drinks.
I love this coffee. It works beautifully on my Nespresso machine and the coffee itself is of the utmost quality. A beautiful cream at the top, you can truly taste the flavors underneath. What a wonderful way to start the day, or just enjoy an espresso whenever. 10/10
I tried the cold brew concentrates which were delicious and perfect for a warm sunny day and the customer services is one of the best experiences i have had in a long. I definitely will be ordering Ambros coffee again and recommending to friends.
As an avid coffee drinker, I was overly confident about drinking this blend at night. Typically I could drink an espresso, latte, whatever other espresso based drink at night and be fine to sleep a few hours later. This blend wakes you up and keeps you awake. Its friendly aroma, rich and satisfying flavours are an authentic vibe that brings back all the best coffees one may have had ever (think European styles). It is a top choice favorite of mine now. So high praise and points for substance and style.
Our daughter lives in Mexico and had traveled to Chiapis where she picked up some coffee for us, It was terrific! Unfortunately we finished the bag and then started trying to figure out how to get more. I stumbled across Ambros coffee and they had the blend we were looking for Jaltentango. We decided to take a chance and ordered 1 kg because of the free shipping. It came very quickly. It's a perfect match for the one our daughter brought us! We are very happy.
