Browning sugars and cooked fruits on the nose lead into a cup full of berry compote and caramel-like qualities. Lush and sweet, this coffee is a wonderful representation of a Santa Barbara coffee.
The 2005 Cup of Excellence launched the Santa Barbara producing region of Honduras onto the Specialty Coffee map, and it has stayed there ever since. While much of what got it there is thanks to natural conditions (climate, soil, etc.), it is primarily thanks to two coffee families that is has stayed there: the Paz family, who runs the mill that cleaned and exported this lot, and the Moreno family who shares their knowledge and facilities with the producing community.
