Coffee Review - Honduras Coprocael by Desert Sun Coffee
  • Desert Sun Coffee Roasters

    Durango, Colorado
  • Honduras Coprocael

Roast: Medium-Light Review Date: July 2011
Origin: Octopeque Province, Honduras. Price: $10.99/12 ounces

Blind Assessment: Gently and sweetly bright, delicately balanced. Milk chocolate and plum-like fruit with hints of vanilla and fresh leather in aroma and cup. Softly tart acidity; silky mouthfeel. Sweet though very slightly drying and astringent in the finish.

Notes: Certified organically grown and Fair Trade certified, meaning this coffee was purchased from small-holding farmers at a "fair" or economically sustainable price. Desert Sun’s roastery is located at nearly 7,000 feet above sea level in the San Juan Mountains of Colorado. It imports its coffee through its membership in Coop Coffees, a cooperative importer. Visit or call 866-998-6299 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Those who enjoy classically delicate light-roasted coffees, complex and lively.


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.
