About the bean
Known for its rich, arabica coffee, Honduras is gaining a reputation for high-grown specialty offerings that reflect the country's immensely diverse coffee profile: a result of the different processes, altitudes, micro-climates and varieties that distinguish the small but mighty Honduras as a coffee region of note.
Sun and mechanically dried
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.
Roasting recommendation: For our taste test we roasted light but should have gone for Full City. For an explanation of our different roasts, see here: http://greenbeanery.ca/pages/roasting-chart.

About the bean:
Ethiopia, the legendary home of the coffee plant and Africa's largest exporter, grows remarkably varied and distinctive beans. One of the very finest comes from the Yirgacheffe region -- the only coffee allowed in the palaces of Ethiopian kings. Today, this bean, which grows in high elevations under a soft canopy of native shade trees, is developing an almost cult-like following among bean aficionados. Widely recognized as one of the world's most exquisite coffees, Yirgacheffe's fragrant and flowery citrus note sets it apart from any other bean you will encounter. Many compare its rich flavor to that of burgundy wines.
To best bring out Yirgacheffe's subtleties, roast it medium. Consider blending it to add nuance to other coffees. A few like it roasted dark: Yirgacheffe then becomes sharply pungent but very thin, bereft of all its flowery and fruity notes.
