About the bean

Honduras is known mainly for its rich arabica coffee, often used by coffee retailers for blending, but the country is also gaining a reputation for high-grown specialty offerings similar in profile to the more popular Central American coffees. The "Honduras Specialty Coffee Competition - Cup of Excellence" - held yearly in San Pedro Sula - is gaining worldwide attention.

Cupping Notes

A light, slightly thin coffee, sweet and delicate. You will want to roast this one a bit higher than most (dark is fine) to ensure the chocolatey, robust notes are maximized.

  • SHG (Strictly High Grown) means that the coffee was grown at an altitude of around 1,350 metres. Coffee grown at a higher altitude and lower temperature slows fruit maturity and produces a denser bean, which, in turn, creates a more desirable specialty cup. This classification is higher than HG.
  • EP (European Preparation) indicates that the raw beans have been hand sorted to ensure defective beans and foreign material have been removed.
