Coffee Review - Honduras Finca El Gringacho by OQ Coffee
  • OQ Coffee Co.

    New Brunswick, New Jersey
  • Honduras Finca El Gringacho Yellow Catuai

Roast: Medium-Light Review Date: December 2011
Origin: Santa Barbara, Honduras. Price: $9.99/8 ounces

Blind Assessment: Ripe, balanced cup. Cocoaish chocolate, lemon, peach, a hint of fir in aroma and cup. Crisply delicate, rather juicy acidity; silky but lean mouthfeel. The dominant cocoa note carries into a slightly drying finish.

Notes: This lot was produced from trees of the respected Yellow Catuai variety of Arabica, locally known as “Nanze.” A Nanze microlot placed first in the 2011 Santa Barbara Regional Green Coffee Competition.

Who Should Drink It: Those who enjoy a crisp cup with impressive tart-to-sweet balance and lemony-cocoa aromatics.


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.
