  • David Mancia Honduras

Roast: Light Review Date: August 2013
Origin: Santa Barbara Department, Honduras. Price: $13.50/8.8 ounces

Blind Assessment: Sweetly tart, subtly floral. Honey, candied lemon, hints of rose-like flowers and roasted cacao nib in aroma and cup. Gently brisk acidity; lightly syrupy mouthfeel. Flavor saturates a rich, slightly drying finish.

Notes: Produced from trees of the Pacas and Catimor varieties of Arabica on the two-hectare farm of David Mancia in the Honduran 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.

Who Should Drink It: Those who enjoy a balance of almost candyish sweetness and tart citrus in a classic Central America cup.


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.
