Cocafel Honduras by De La Paz Coffee Review |
  • De La Paz Coffee

    San Francisco, California
  • Cocafelol Honduras

Roast: Medium-Light Review Date: August 2013
Origin: Ocotepeque Department, Honduras Price: $16.50/12 ounces

Blind Assessment: Delicately rich, sweet-toned. Distinct carob-like chocolate, brown sugar, hints of ripe citrus and spicy aromatic wood – sandalwood perhaps – in aroma and cup. Quiet, vibrant acidity; plushly full mouthfeel. Flavor carries almost intact into a round, sweet-toned finish.

Notes: From trees of the Bourbon, Caturra and Catuai varieties of Arabica and produced by COCAFELOL, an organically-certified Honduran coffee cooperative located in La Labor, Ocotepeque. De La Paz Coffee is a small-batch coffee roasting company that focuses on high quality coffee and meticulous roasting. Visit or call 415-525-4344 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: A hint of spicy aromatic wood deepens and complicates a plush mouthfeel and sweet-toned, chocolaty aroma and flavor.


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.
