    This is a complex roast-- hits high notes (lemon, citrus) and deeper (tart walnut with a bit of roasted hazelnut) notes. Well-crafted and enjoyable. There is a nice accompanying acidity. I would call this an excellent light roast, but I think it is actually a medium roast.

    Cupping Method:Vietnamese drip, cream with no sweetener

    An outstanding single-origin espresso that clearly expresses the notes pecan, tamarind, and vanilla notes mentioned. Those are challenging ones to hit and be good. The tamarind is nice as it's more of an overtone than a quick burst in some coffees where it comes on too strong. As espresso, this one's pretty citrusy on the back end of the palate but doesn't get too tart.

    Medium crema, medium body, nice mouthfeel.

    Cupping Method:I got this as a gift from a friend from Calgary. I used it for straight espresso, a cortado, and iced Americano. It worked well in all formats.

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.

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.
