Roasting: Start at City + (light-medium) and go a bit darker as desired. We find it best not to go any darker than Full City + (medium dark) or you lose the subtle tangerine and creamy texture of this coffee. The amazing thing is how rich this coffee is at lighter roasts!
Reminder: This coffee is raw, you must roast it before brewing!
Our Review: It's been a while since we had a coffee from one of our favorite Co-ops, COMSA. COMSA is a Honduran co-op of farmers in Marcala who joined together in 2000 to pool their resources and get Organic and eventually Fair Trade Certifications. Within COMSA is a small group of female farmers who started an initiative in 2013 called "Manos de Mujer," which means the hands of women. This initiative began in an effort to improve the standard of living for female farmers and their families, as well as create awareness and promote gender equality within the community. Great coffee doing great things? We're on board.
So how's it taste?! We found the body to be surprisingly rich for a Honduran coffee! The texture is creamy and the finish lingers just for a bit. The flavors were also a bit more complex and interesting than we're used to and throughout the cup we found notes of caramel, tangerine honey, cocoa and a hint of peach. Highly drinkable yet interesting and full of rich body and sweet flavors, so hold the milk and sugar! This is one of the absolute best Honduran coffees we can remember having, so don't miss it.
