Counter Culture Coffee Roasters
Honduras El Puente
|Roaster Location:||Durham, North Carolina|
|Coffee Origin:||La Paz Department, Honduras|
|Review Date:||October 2005|
Gently bittersweet aroma with chocolate, cherry and cedar notes. Roundly rich in the cup, with distinct dry cocoa and surprising floral notes. Sweet and rich in the short finish, with a slight astringent bite in the long. Gains in power and quiet complexity as it cools.
A coffee purchased at auction under the Specialty Coffee Association of America's "Q Auction" (Q = quality) program, from the same farm as the second prize winner in the 2005 Honduras Cup of Excellence, a coffee that attracted a score of 92-plus from an international jury. Counter Culture Coffee is a small-batch wholesale specialty roaster with a particularly informative and lively website and youthful, enthusiastic leadership. Visit
