Cupping Notes: Dark Chocolate, with hints of citrus, pepper, and spice
One of our most distinctive coffees comes from the tall mountains around Lake Yojoa in Northern Honduras. The famers at Cero Azul, El Jaguar, and San Vicente have provided us with a world class coffee that is distinct in body and flavor. This is a spectacular coffee that has become the favorite of many of our friends. We roast it to a consistent dark brown, with specks of oil present, and dump it well into the second crack. The result is deep body, smooth flavor, and a rich finish.
