A couple years back we got to meet with 10-15 of their headliner producers. You could tell this co-op meant the world to them and really helps improve their standard of living while giving them the toolset to make some stellar beans. Although i really enjoyed meeting them – one could tell what it meant to them to see and meet the end users of their product.
Our Honduras Santa Rosa SHG EP is sourced from small community cooperatives working together with Beneficio Santa Rosa, located in Santa Rosa de Copan, Honduras. Beneficio Santa Rosa was founded in 2005 to facilitate the commercialization and export of high quality coffee from the western region of Honduras. Through an innovative partnership with TechnoServe (a nonprofit organization that develops business solutions to overcome poverty by linking people to information, capital and markets), Beneficio Santa Rosa formed Mejoramiento Agrícola Sostenible (MAS), a project that supports more than 6,000 coffee producers with technical assistance resulting in higher quality coffee and increased income for producers, while protecting the environment. Beneficio Santa Rosa is also firmly invested in community development as one of the founding members of Amigos del Café, an organization established to assist coffee producers with education, medical assistance and food security.
This cup very smooth, rich and clean. fuller bodied and lower acidity the main tone is going to be pretty chocolaty – a deep semi-sweet chocolate smokey note balanced with just a hint of a floral aspect. This Honduran is a sweet, balanced, clean coffee with a nice spice note and slight wineyness and a little caramel at the lighter roasts.
A very nice single origin breakfast coffee – smooth, mellow and chocolaty a great cup to wake up to.
An easy and versatile coffee to roast, medium to dark. A faster roast will highlight the bright, clean flavor notes.
