    This roast is almost dangerously good.

    I could not stop drinking a large pot of pourover I made. It was super smooth and fruity. I got summer strawberries, black tea, and brown sugar.

    Then I pulled it as espresso and it was also incredible. Floral, complex, massive, lively crema. A touch nutty, blackberry and a long lingering finish.

    Cupping Method:Very freshly roasted direct from the roaster.

    I liked this both as espresso and pourover but maybe not as much as Ted!

    Really pleasant with a nice swirl of flavors, almost a little nutty at one point. I would definitely buy this one again!

    Wow, I don't add any sweetener to coffee, so I really notice when a roast is sweet... and this was very sweet! The sweetness, paired with an unusually strong coffee flavor, makes this extremely drinkable. There was a bit of a light chocolate/nutty/citrus undertone. I'm ranking this coffee 5 stars, even though there is less acidity than I prefer, because it is really that good and I also give Del's bonus points for supporting Fair Trade arrangements with organic certification.

More Details

Roast Level: Light Medium
A Light Medium Roast coffee, sometimes referred to as a "City Roast" or "American Roast," lies between a light and medium roast. This roast level strikes a balance by preserving the coffee bean's unique characteristics while allowing for a moderate development of body and flavor. The beans have a medium brown color, exhibiting a slight sheen of oils, providing a more balanced and nuanced flavor profile. A Light Medium Roast typically highlights the coffee's inherent fruity, floral, or citrus notes, while also providing some of the deeper, richer flavors associated with medium roasts.
Bean Source Country: Honduras
Honduran specialty coffee is distinguished by its diverse growing regions, such as Copán, Santa Bárbara, and Comayagua, each offering distinct flavor profiles due to the country's varied microclimates and elevations. Coffee from Honduras often features bright acidity, medium body, and a range of flavors, including fruity, nutty, and chocolatey notes.
Organic
Organic coffee is produced without synthetic chemicals, such as pesticides, herbicides, and artificial fertilizers. Instead, organic coffee farmers rely on natural and sustainable agricultural practices like crop rotation, composting, and biological pest control. To be labeled as organic, coffee must meet strict regulations and certification criteria set by governing bodies, such as the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) or the European Union (EU). Organic coffee not only supports environmental sustainability but may also offer health benefits, as it contains fewer chemical residues than conventionally grown coffee.
Fair trade
Fair-trade coffee refers to coffee beans that are produced, traded, and sold following a set of ethical and social standards designed to ensure fair treatment of farmers and workers in the coffee industry. Fair Trade organizations work to create a more equitable global trade model by prioritizing the well-being of small-scale coffee producers and farm workers, primarily in developing countries.
