About the bean

Once again, our latest batch of Honduras SHG EP is from Finca Lara, a family-run farm established in 1965 that has passed from father to son and now includes grandson, Ramon, who is responsible for introducing tens of thousands of pounds of Honduran coffee to the Canadian market.

Located in Santa Barbara - a coffee-producing region of growing Cup of Excellence fame in the country's west - Finca Lara reflects the burgeoning reputation of growers particular to this area. Lara's offerings continue to delight with coffees that are impressively flavorful and bright at a sweet price.

The price is right and the taste's a delight.

Taste Notes

A real character of a bean - intense, fruity, clean, clear and fresh with a medium brightness. One of our favourite Central Americans these days at a darker roast profile for a rich result. We enjoy this one as an espresso and in blends. Pairs well with food and, when the time comes, a good pick for cold brews. 

Roast recommendation: Flavour comes out to play at a Full City+ to Vienna roast profile. For an explanation of our different roasts, see here: http://greenbeanery.ca/pages/roasting-chart.
