  • Honduras Marcala

Roast: Medium-Dark Review Date: November 2009
Origin: Marcala growing region, La Paz Department, Honduras. Price: NA

Blind Assessment: The sweet-toned aroma suggests butter, toast, raisiny fruit. In the cup, deep, roast-muted acidity, medium body, soft mouthfeel and straightforward flavors of molasses and nut-toned chocolate with a continued hint of dried fruit. A mild bittersweet chocolate character fades quickly in the finish.

Notes: This coffee is certified organically grown and Fair Trade, meaning it was purchased from small-holding farmers at a "fair" or economically sustainable price. Crescent Moon is an artisan small-batch roaster in the Philadelphia area emphasizing sustainability and quality in its coffee sourcing.
