CHARACTERISTICS OF HONDURAN COFFEE
You may be wondering what makes Honduran coffee beans so great and comparable to Costa Rican or Guatemalan beans. Honduran coffee is a rich Arabica bean that is typically wet processed. It is often used a good base for blending with other coffees but it is also sold as a single-origin coffee. When lightly roasted it features a delicate smooth texture with a slightly sweet taste. The various flavor profiles include fruity (tamarind fruit and lemon zest), nutty (almond and coconut) and chocolatey undertones. Grown at altitude ranges from central standard to high grown to strictly high grown, these dense Honduran beans are packed with flavor and present a light delicate finish. Honduran coffees can range from bright, acidic flavor profiles, lightly fruited and with strong cane sugar sweetness, to more caramel-like, lower acidity coffees that are nice in espresso.
