This exceptional coffee is balanced, creamy and full bodied. With just a bit of zesty front end and notes of baker's chocolate and caramel, it makes for a comforting fall cup.

Arrival Date: October 16th, 2020

Acidity & Brightness: On the bright side with a creamy sweetness

Balance & Finish: Balanced, smooth finish

Body & Texture: Creamy texture, rich body

Flavors: Baker's chocolate, lemon zest and caramel

Grade: SHG – Strictly High Grown, 1200 – 1800 masl

Certifications: Organic, Fair Trade

Processing: Fully washed, hand-picked, sun dried

Varietals: Bourbon, Catuai, Caturra, Lempira, Ihcafe 90, and Typica

Roasting: Excellent right at a medium roast (Full City) but takes all roast levels well. Explore as dark as Vienna for more baker's chocolate and less crispness but we think it's best in the Full City to Full City + range with no more than just a touch of oil on the beans.

Reminder: This coffee is raw, you must roast it before brewing!

Our Review: Founded in 1997, Cooperativa Regional de Agricultores Orgánicos de la Sierra (RAOS), was the first cooperative of small and medium organic coffee producers in Honduras. RAOS has 270 members, many of them pioneers in the organic movement with decades of experience cultivating coffee. Others are from a new generation of producers who grew up on their parents’ organic farms. Running organic farms is in their blood but not without adding their own new ideas. Many of these producers have built new ecologically run micro-mills with a demucilager, which uses very little water and controls the amount of mucilage that remains on the coffee bean after depulping without fermenting or washing the coffee. RAOS has two larger collective wet-mills where 80 percent of its members deliver cherry. The wet-mills use the same demucilager technology to run ecologically. RAOS has also invested significantly to improve its drymill installation. In addition to new warehouse space and more mechanical dryers, the facility has 2 new electronic eyes running in series to color sort green coffee. RAOS also has a cupping lab and certified Q grader who cups every lot to ensure quality. The Marcala region where RAOS operates has a protected designation of origin (DENOMINACION DE ORIGEN CAFE DE MARCALA) to preserve the renowned reputation of the Marcala profile.

This delicious cup is well rounded and balanced, perfect for that comforting morning cup on a chilly fall morning! A zesty, lemony front end gives way to a creamy texture and rich, full body followed by a clean and smooth finish. Look for notes of baker's chocolate and rich caramel.
