COFFEE, 24/7: Firelight Camps coffee brew kicks up the meaning of "campfire coffee." Our founders, Emma & Bobby, opened their first hotel in Matagalpa, Nicaragua in the heart of coffee country. When they opened Firelight Camps in Ithaca, they weren't willing to trade in the world's best coffee. So, they connected with their friend and Nicaraguan coffee farmer, Enrique Ferrufino, who manages Proyecto Aurora, a group of coffee farmers dedicated to reinvesting a percentage of their profits in sustainable growing practices. Enrique's beans now arrive fresh at Copper Horse Coffee in Ithaca, where owner Jesse Harriot roasts a specialty Firelight Camps blend. Jesse also made sure we were brewing the best possible coffee for our guests, using a pour over method you'll be hard pressed to find in any other hotel lobby ... let alone around the campfire!
BYO PICNIC: We encourage you to bring your own picnic to Firelight Camps, or collect cheese, preserves and other culinary treasures when you explore the region to sample back at camp.
