This is a certified Organic single origin offering from the CAFESCOR (Cafes Especiáles Corquín) Cooperative. CAFESCOR is comprised of over 130 farm members from the region surrounding the municipality of Corquín, Honduras, near the borders of both Guatemala and El Salvador. As a country, Honduras produces the 6th most coffee in the world, but until recently was not commonly associated with specialty grade coffee. CAFESCOR was formed in 2012 to change that narrative and has achieved Fair Trade, USDA Organic, and Rain Forest Alliance certifications.
This is our third year offering coffee from CAFESCOR, and with it's versatility and consistency, we hope to continue to support this coffee as long as are able source it.
The most distinguishing characteristic of the coffee, as a roaster, is it's considerable density. We roast this coffee to a light-medium roast level to preserve it's natural bright sweetness, but apply more heat and a longer roast time to ensure proper development of these dense beans.
In the cup, we find it to be balanced and clean, with a buttery mouthfeel and notes of toasted nuts and graham cracker.
