|Roaster Location:||Portland, Oregon|
|Coffee Origin:||El Paraiso Department, Honduras|

Blind Assessment: A crisp, malty fruit runs through the profile, suggesting a low key bouquet of possibilities: peach, cedar, chocolate, black currant, cherry. The finish is particularly impressive, rich, sweet, long, and nuanced with persistent berry and cherry tones.
Notes: A prize winner in the 2005 Honduras Cup of Excellence competition, where as a green (unroasted) coffee it placed 30th out of hundreds of entries, attracting a score of 86 from an international jury. Under the youthful and enthusiastic leadership of Duane Sorenson, Stumptown has become a leading buyer and supporter of Cup of Excellence coffees.
