Honduras Reserva Pacavita, Organic
Honduras coffees are complex for a Latin American coffee, but still smooth and nutty. This one hits the nail on the head. It has a nice almond / cocoa flavor with a citrus finish. Every time I try a Honduras coffee I enjoy it and wonder why this isn't a more popular coffee growing country.
Most farms in the area were established more than 30 years ago, and are between 2 and 3 hectares in size. Many are shaded by beautiful Inga trees. Surrounded by a diverse environment of biological reserves and mountain ranges, the Pacavita region has ideal climatic conditions for growing coffee. Coffee plants grow in rich clay soils, mostly shaded, at elevations of up to 1,700 meters ASL in this area of western Honduras. Many producers wet mill their own coffee and dry it completely on patios, preserving the quality of their beans themselves.
