Taste


This is a smooth and rich coffee, with cocoa notes and slight hints of nutmeg and licorice. It works well with milk where some praline nut sweetness appears.


Facts


Until recently Honduran coffee had not made it to the summit of the speciality coffee market due to mediocre coffee processing and transporting, little inward investment to put things right and the lack of a distinct brand in the consumer market. However, the great soil, altitude, climate in the Honduras combined with farmers increasingly better-trained in agricultural practices is resulting in some amazing coffees. Finca Monte Cristo coffee comes from the western mountainous region of Copan and is a high quality coffee designated as ‘Strictly High Grown’ (SHG) grown at between 1500 – 2000 meters above sea level which is an important criteria when searching for the best coffees.
Coffee is a hugely important industry to Honduras with more than 40,000 coffee farms and some two million people involved in the coffee harvest, that’s 30% of Honduras employment. The largest growing region is Santa Barbara, as well as Copan, Ocotepeque, Lempira, La Paz and El Paraiso in the South.

Flavour Profiles Caramel, Chocolate, Nutty
Roast Profile An easy and predictable bean to roast. For home use we take it just past first crack but not as far as second to deliver its full flavour profile including the hints of licorice. Being quite robust this bean can also be taken up to second crack (but no further!) This brings out a deep & strong flavour all cocoa and cedar wood, great if you go for a really brutal cup and for adding intensity to some of our commercial blends.
Cupping Notes 1. Acidity - Mild that develops slowly on the palate. 2. Sweetness - good sweetness. 3. Body - A near full body roasted to this level. 4. Balance - great balance of flavours, moves nicely from sweet, to mild acidity to cocoa and pleasant aftertaste. 5. Character - Smooth and rich, with cocoa notes and slight hints of nutmeg and licorice. This coffee works well with milk where some praline nut sweetness appears
Origin Notes This Santa Rosa coffee comes from the western mountainous region of Copan and is a high quality coffee designated as ‘Strictly High Grown’ (SHG) grown at between 1500 – 2000 meters above sea level. The coffee lot is sourced from a number of plantations in the region and thus has little providence information. Honduras is still struggling to break away from its past reputation for mediocre coffee but this coffee is a beaut!

Reviews

Black is Best
By
I have been drinking this coffee black and it works for me. You do get a hint of licorice but it is a smooth coffee not too bitter. I would buy this one again.
Perfect cappuccinos
By
I've tried quite a few different blends from York. All have been fantastic but this always finds its way in to my basket. Perfect for cappuccinos
