Great quality!

Thrilled with these beans. Always great quality from this company! Will definitely continuing buying here.

Great gifts come in small packages!

I drink mainly organic and generally prefer African and Indonesian coffees but occasionally will try one from Central or South America. I was pleasantly surprised at how good this Organic Honduras Copan was. I did a city roast on this bean and it held up nicely. It has a soft mouth feel, is incredibly smooth and balanced from the initial palate flavors across to the finish. I taste caramel notes up front finished with hints of semi-sweet chocolate. This was so good, I ordered another 5 lb bag!

Wow! Loved it!

Quick backstory: I have been roasting various Central American beans lately, so a recent sale encouraged me to try these beans from Honduras (make sure you sign up for emails :) Each coffee is quite different, and taking a flavor tour through the countries has been a lot of fun.

About the coffee: I really LOVED the combination of acidity, sweetness, and chocolate flavors that came out when roasting just up to first hints of second crack. I was wowed! I also roasted a lighter batch. It was very good, just without the chocolate notes. Some brighter flavors can be too striking for my taste, but the sweetness/acidic combination kept me going back for another sip. It really makes your taste buds come alive.

Great service

Always a freindly experience

Smooth, With Plenty of Kick

I found this coffee to be very consistent, with hints of fruity taste and full of clarity. What stood out most is that it seems to have twice the caffeine content of other beans. I usually have 4 or 5 servings a day, but I would tap out with 2 or 3 with this bean.

farm to cup

We get our beans from the farms and roast coffee daily. We truly are farm to cup.
