About This Coffee:
Recommended as a medium roast any time of the day.
These beans hold the title of SHG, or Strictly High Grown, a specification reserved for coffee grown at an altitude around 1,350 meters. Coffee grown at a higher altitude and lower temperature produces a slower maturing fruit and a denser bean, creating a more desirable specialty cup. Additionally, these coffee beans are classified EP, or European Preparation, which means that the raw beans are hand sorted to remove any defective beans and foreign material.
About This Region:
Harvested in the celebrated coffee-producing Comayagua region located in the south central part of the country, it is an area noted for its hills and pine forests, nutrient-rich red clay, and well defined wet and dry seasons. Coffees from this region carry their own classic regional flavor profile-sweet, fragrant with citrus, fruity flavors, creamy body, and bright acidity. It is believed that this region gave birth to coffee cultivation in Honduras, and coffee remains an important activity and underpinning for economic development there.
