Caballero Java - 2019 Harvest


Sweet cocoa, graham cracker, and subtle stone fruit on the nose lead to an elegantly balanced cup offering a mild wafer cookie sweetness, delicate plum-like acidity, and a delicate black tea quality that becomes more prominent as the coffee cools.

This delicate example of the Java variety, produced by Marysabel Caballero and Moises Herrera on their farm Finca JR in the La Paz region of Honduras, is a study in elegance. While some of the best Honduran coffees are characterized by exotic fruit flavors and dynamic acidity, this selection demonstrates qualities of refinement and nuance that are equally pleasing.
