  • Honduras El Cielito S.O. Espresso

Roast: Medium-Dark Review Date: January 2013
Origin: Santa Barbara, Honduras. Price: $16.20/12 ounces
Evaluated as espresso. Intense, complex aroma: cedar, dark chocolate, roasted nut, night-blooming flowers. The aromatics sharpen in the small cup; the flowers turn toward anise and the cedar note dominates. Lightly syrupy mouthfeel; rich, buttery finish. Paradoxically turns rather bitter and dry in two parts milk, but softens and sweetens in longer milk, which develops the dark chocolate note while maintaining some deepening memory of cedar and anise.

In two parts milk a sweet chocolate dominates complicated by gently tart fruit.

Symphonically fruit-toned and shimmeringly bright. An “underlying crushed grape sweetness” (co-cupper Wendy De Jong, 94) supported an array of lemon and berry suggestions.

Co-cupper Wendy De Jong showed a bit more enthusiasm (89) than Ken (88) for this roast-influenced profile. For the dominant aromatic note in the cup Wendy read “fresh fig,” Ken simply “raisin.” Both cited a pungent, spicy cedar; Ken added dark chocolate. For Wendy the acidity was “mild and fruity.” Fullish body, though Ken found the mouthfeel slightly lean.

Evaluated as espresso. For both Ken (93) and co-taster Andy Newbom (93) softly complex fruit, floral and citrus were the main themes here, with the most distinctive nuance the sweet, rich character of the citrus. Andy described it in multiple ways, from "citrus jelly" to "chiffony and meringuey" in the small cup to "lemon curd" in four parts milk. Ken also cited a backgrounded crisp cocoa that supported the pervasive lemony richness. Probably best as a straight shot, but successfully imposed its citrusy elegance on tall milk.

Evaluated as espresso. Co-taster Andy Newbom (91) and Ken (91) in particular admired the mouthfeel of the straight shot: "big in the mouth ... viscous but not heavy" in Andy's words. In flavor licoricy and spicy, slightly sharp, rounded by prune and berry notes. In four parts milk the flavor plumped up and rounded beautifully toward a complex chocolate, in Andy's words "chocolate ... nuts and candied apple."

Roast: Very-Dark Review Date: July 2003
Origin: Agalta, Honduras, Honduran, Central America Price: NA
The extremely dark roast (about as dark as roasts get) leaves hardly a trace of Honduras behind, just some anonymous burned tones, gentle and sweet until the finish, when the sweetness vanishes, leaving behind a salty astringency.

Roast: Medium-Dark Review Date: December 2001
Origin: Marcala, Honduras, Central American, Latin American Price: NA
Sweet, rich with hints of lemon and flowers, low-toned but solidly authoritative. The body is exceptional: big, smooth, mouthfilling, with impressions of cream. The rich, lemony character lingers pleasingly in the aftertaste.
