A beautiful fresh top lot from Honduras. High altitude very dense beans with virtually 0 defects. A ton of care went into these beans and it will show in the taste. A rich, clean, sweet and balanced cup.
Glenda is a young coffee producer from the community of El Zanate, located in San Sebastián, Lempira. She grew up there and dropped out of school after finishing the fourth grade which led her to help her mother in all the house chores and sometimes her father in agricultural activities. Once older, she got married and her husband started to work growing coffee in rented lands. Years later, Glenda received from her father a plot of land as inheritance, where she planted coffee right away without a doubt. She bought the coffee plants from another producer of the area who made nurseries and today, those plants are the ones that make up her farm El Aguacate. In order to reduce contamination in the environment, Glenda has changed the way she manages her farm by reusing the pulp to produce organic fertilizer, treating the honey waters in a pond, planting fruit and timber trees, and cleaning the farm manually with machete to avoid the use of herbicides that damage the soils or contaminate water.
Tasting Notes: A very nice and clean Honduran offering. Hints of acidity upfront at the lighter roasts that give a little citrus with soft fruit balanced with a bit of dry semi-sweet chocolate, a bit floral in its aromatics. Medium roasts get much richer and bring good definition to the more chocolaty aspect, reducing acidity to a low acidity offering. A little hint of caramel in the cup especially as the cup cools. Darker roasts cut out all acidity and floral aspects leaving a much stronger more bakers chocolate type cup with hints of smoke and roasty notes.
Roasting Notes: Easy to roast, a nice medium roast will make everyone happy. Tasty at the light roast or dark roast marks assuming you general like these roast points. A little longer setup rids any sour edge.
