We are proud to announce that we just bought lot no. 5 lot on the 2009 Honduras Cup of Excellence.
This is the same coffee we bought last year from Cielito Lindo both years it has by far been our favourite on the cupping table among the other Honduras Cup of Excellence lots. (we taste the lots blind of course)
This is why we payed the 3rd highest price for this coffee this year at USD 12.05 per pound (453g) of green unpacked and unshipped coffee.
Last year we payed USD 14 per pound, but it does not mean this years coffee is any worse in flavour.
The 2009 lot is a bit lighter than last years coffee, but shows much more complexity and an even cleaner mouthfeel. It looks like Mr. Extreberto has done an even better job this year, hopefully investing in his farm with the money we payed him last year.
Here is a small taste description of the coffee:
Intense citric and berry aromas. Sweet acidity as in stonefruits. Sparkling acidity and a firm sweet aftertaste.
When hot it has a lot of stone fruit aromas as in peach and nectarines. When it cools it developes more rose hip flavours and black currant like flavours.
Hopefully we will get the coffee within 2 months.
