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