Indulge in the rich flavors of this coffee hailing from the COMSA group in Honduras. The cup starts with notes of chocolate truffle that continues throughout the entire cup. In the middle of the cup, the velvety richness of butterscotch sauce blends with the fluffy butteriness of a freshly baked peach pastry. The finish is clean, soft, and sweet, finishing with chocolate notes.
For those seeking to branch out of dark roasts and give a medium roast a try, this is a wonderful coffee to explore. With a profile that leans slightly darker than your typical medium roast, it boasts a medium-heavy body, low acidity, and a richness that drinks a little darker than its medium roast color.
