  • Honduras Tutule La Sociedad

Roast: Medium Review Date: November 2004
Origin: Tutule growing region, La Paz Department, southwestern Honduras Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Low-toned and pungent, bittersweet rather than acidy. Cedar and chocolate hints in the aroma; in the cup a deep, pruny (or perhaps dried fig) fruit and crisp, dry berry notes, with perhaps a little rounding suggestion of chocolate.

Notes: A prize winner in the 2004 Honduras Cup of Excellence competition, where as a green (unroasted) coffee it placed eleventh out of hundreds of entries, attracting a score of 86 from an international jury. Produced from trees of the respected catuai variety of arabica on the La Sociedad farm at a growing altitude of approximately 5,400 feet. Counter Culture Coffee is a small-batch wholesale specialty roaster with a particularly informative and lively website and youthful, enthusiastic leadership.

Who Should Drink It: Fig-Newton lovers.


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.
