In legend, Saint Barbara is associated with fire, lightning, explosions... why not coffee roasting? With its sweet notes of raspberry jam and crisp red grapes, this microlot Honduran from Santa Barbara region will definitely light your fire.
We fell in love with this super micro-lot-- less than 350 lbs in total-- so we bought it all! This coffee is grown and was cared for by Pedro Urquia from San Vicente in the Santa Barbara Department of Honduras. Crisp, bright, and lush flavors of raspberry jam and red table grapes.
"Brewed in my french press. A very light coffee but couldn't taste notes of any particular fruit."
"Bright and juicy. I picked up a little bit of apricot, raspberry, peach and lime. The finish is more lime-like and the front is juicy, like peach and raspberry. It's a washed bean so the fruitiness isn't too pronounced, but it's there. "
"A little flat. Not bad, but not memorable either. Does not offend, but does not excite. (pour over.)"
"The sugar ruins this. I drink everything black from my french press and this was overwhelmingly sweet."
