Blind Assessment: Bittersweet aroma with baking spices, chocolate and walnut. Sweet acidity in the cup with dark berry, stone fruit, cocoa and cedar notes. Rich finish, with more chocolate tones lingering in the long.
Notes: Planted with the Catuai variety of Arabica, Finca El Puente has fared well in many coffee quality competitions over the years, including past Honduras Cup of Excellence competitions.
