Milk Chocolate, Figs, Dried Apricot
Finca La Torre
This is our first ever coffee from the Latin American Country of Honduras. I'm not sure what took me so long to sample a coffee from this country, but I won't make that mistake again. This is the first and only sample I've had from Honduras and it was / is awesome. Every time I drink this coffee, I comment on it. The smooth chocolate taste. The fruited fig or dried apricot notes are in the finish / after taste. There is another spice there, but I cannot put my finger on it. What I do know is that it makes for a perfect flavor profile.
