    Marvelous complex espresso for light/medium drinkers who don't mind a bit of tartness. Acidity is bright and complex with satsuma orange and blackberry notes. There's also a touch of nuttiness, spice, natural sweetness, and a syrupy aftertaste with a long linger. A definite winner for sipping espresso for me.

Roast Level: Medium
Medium roast coffee balances the beans' natural flavors and the roasting process, providing a well-rounded taste profile. When selecting a medium roast, look for a balance of acidity and sweetness, with caramel, nuts, and chocolate notes and a medium body.
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.
Bean Source Region: Santa Barbara
Specialty coffee from Santa Barbara, Honduras is typically grown at 1,200 to 1,800 meters above sea level, providing ideal conditions for complex flavor development. The region is renowned for cultivating a variety of coffee varietals, including Bourbon, Pacas, Catimore, Catuai, and the highly-prized Pacamara.

Espresso
Espresso is a concentrated coffee beverage brewed by forcing hot water through finely-ground coffee beans under high pressure. It is characterized by its rich flavor and distinctive crema—the creamy layer that forms on top of the extracted process. When evaluating espresso, coffee experts often focus on key tasting characteristics such as aroma, flavor, body, and aftertaste. Aroma refers to the fragrant smells released during brewing, while flavor encompasses the coffee's overall taste profile, including notes of sweetness, bitterness, acidity, and richness. Body refers to the coffee's texture or mouthfeel, with descriptors like full-bodied, medium-bodied, or light-bodied. Aftertaste, or the finish, pertains to the lingering flavors and sensations experienced after swallowing the coffee. A well-prepared espresso is prized for its balance and complexity, combining these sensory attributes into a harmonious whole.
