Coffee Review - Honduras El Limon by Coava Coffee
  • Coava Coffee Roasters

    Portland, Oregon
  • Honduras El Limon

Roast: Medium-Light Review Date: August 2010
Origin: Lempira and Copan departments, Honduras. Price: $10.00/250 g. (8.8 oz.)

Blind Assessment: Rich aroma and flavor highlighted by sweet-toned lemon with suggestions of flowers, berries and baking chocolate. Bright acidity, lightly syrupy mouthfeel and a finish that fades perhaps a bit too quickly, especially as the cup cools.

Notes: This five-bag micro-lot combines coffee from two Honduran farms owned respectively by farmers Gumercindo Herrera and Carlos Serrano. Coava is a Portland based coffee roaster that aims to provide quality coffee and the knowledge needed to properly brew that coffee. Visit or call 503-894-8134 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Rich and sweet-toned. Drink it while it’s hot.
