|Roaster Location:||Santa Rosa Beach, Florida|
|Coffee Origin:||Marcala, La Paz Department, Honduras|
|Est. Price:||$18.00/12 ounces|
|Review Date:||April 2021|
Blind Assessment: Gently fruit-forward. Dried apricot, almond brittle, vanilla, freesia-like flowers, fresh-cut fir in aroma and cup. Sweet-toned with brisk acidity; viscous, satiny mouthfeel. The finish consolidates to vanilla, almond brittle and fresh-cut fir.
Notes: Certified Fair Trade and USDA Organic. Produced by smallholding members of the COMSA Cooperative and processed by the honey method (skin is removed but at least some of the sticky fruit residue is allowed to dry on the bean). The company name Amavida combines the Spanish words for love and life, reflecting Amavida’s multifaceted commitment to fairness and fine coffee.

The Bottom Line: A delicate, perfumy honey-processed Honduras with throughlines of dried stone fruit and spice-toned florals.
