Blind Assessment: Sweet-toned, deep, balanced. Green apple, night-blooming flowers, hints of hazelnut and roasted cacao nib in aroma and cup. Gently bright, lively acidity; buoyant, silky mouthfeel. Hazelnut and apple carry into a sweet though richly drying finish.
Notes: Produced from trees of the heirloom Bourbon variety and Pacas, a dwarf selection of Bourbon. Finca Las Brisas is a tiny farm that produced only twenty-three 150-pound bags of coffee this year; Victrola Coffee bought the entire lot. Honduras, until recently a largely overlooked Central American coffee origin, has been producing increasing volumes of refined coffee over the past few years. Victrola is a small-batch, hands-on roaster with a passionate commitment to quality and distinctiveness. Visit www.victrolacoffee.com or call 206-624-1725 for more information.
Who Should Drink It: Purity, balance and a quietly lively complexity in an impressive Central-America-style cup.
