This coffee has a fruit sweet flavour, a smokey-sweetness, like caramelizing sugar in a pan, which lasts throughout the lingering aftertaste. The medium body and crisp acidity blend well with over-riding fruity, chocolate notes, heightening your sipping pleasure.
For a good part of the last 20 years, many Honduran coffee producers smuggled their coffee across the border to sell it in Guatemala. Guatemala had a better coffee reputation than Honduras and as a result, the crops could fetch a higher price. In that same time period, both the coffee producers and the Honduras Government made a quest to improve the quality of coffee from Honduras through fiscal incentives, the building of highways to access remote growing regions and improved soil analysis and crop management. As a result, in 2012, Honduras became the seventh largest producer of coffee in the world, surpassing Guatemala.
There is no doubt that coffee production and exports saved the state of Honduras from a certain bankruptcy following the 2009 political crisis. All things to think about as you sip your cup of inspiration.
