  • Honduras El Puente

Roast: Medium-Light Review Date: October 2005
Origin: La Paz Department, Honduras Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Gently bittersweet aroma with chocolate, cherry and cedar notes. Roundly rich in the cup, with distinct dry cocoa and surprising floral notes. Sweet and rich in the short finish, with a slight astringent bite in the long. Gains in power and quiet complexity as it cools.

Notes: A coffee purchased at auction under the Specialty Coffee Association of America's "Q Auction" (Q = quality) program, from the same farm as the second prize winner in the 2005 Honduras Cup of Excellence, a coffee that attracted a score of 92-plus from an international jury. Counter Culture Coffee is a small-batch wholesale specialty roaster with a particularly informative and lively website and youthful, enthusiastic leadership.

Who Should Drink It: Those who enjoy the better style of Sumatras.


Coffee, more so than wine, is a continually changing product. Recent reviews, whether written by Coffee Review or readers, are most likely to reflect current versions of a given coffee.
