Cupping Notes

There are some sweet rose and melon notes in the dry aromatics with hints of guava and orange peel. The darker roasts show more cocoa, but still with the guava underscore. The wet aroma has coriander sweet spice, grape juice, and caramel biscuit while the biscuit is more molasses cookie at FC and Roasted Coffee Pictorial Guide. ">FC+. It's very nice, a round and sound cup! This isn't the brassy, tightly wound acidity found in many coffees from Honduras that have more lime and tamarind notes. Light roasts have the best tropical fruit sweetness which is subtle at first but then intensifies with guava, strawberry, hints of passion fruit, and orange marmalade. At Full City a tangy roast bittersweet overlays the fruit, providing a rindy and brisk accent to the cup, finishing with orange spirit bitters and coriander seed. The roast taste is caramelly, pairing well to the viscous body. The sweetness lasts on the palate throughout the long aftertaste. So nice at such a wide range of roasts, and not a tricky coffee to roast at all.

Roast Recommendations

It's hard to pick a favorite roast here; they are all so good. City+ has a softer sweetness and more lively fruit. Full City has this great bittersweet balance, and rindy sweet finish
