  • Honduras Benjamin Miranda

Roast: Medium-Light Review Date: December 2010
Origin: Santa Barbara Department, Honduras. Price: $10.50/250 grams (8.8 oz.)

Blind Assessment: Rich and sweet, combining notes of citrus, stone fruit, honey and flowers. In the cup a brisk tartness balances a lush, juicy character. Lightly syrupy mouthfeel. Flavors slowly fade in the finish to a slightly astringent tartness.

Notes: Produced on the one and a half hectare Honduran farm of Benjamin Miranda in the village of El Cielito at an elevation of over 5,000 feet. 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: Lush, juicy cup with a gently tart backbone.
