Balanced, deeply sweet, rich-toned. Butterscotch, hazelnut, dark chocolate, apricot, freesia-like flowers in aroma and cup. Invitingly bittersweet structure with brisk acidity; very satiny mouthfeel. The finish centers around notes of butterscotch and hazelnut.
Produced by smallholding farmer of the RAOS Cooperative from trees of the Bourbon, Catuaí, Caturra, Lempira, Ihcafe 90 and Typica varieties of Arabica, and processed by the traditional washed method (fruit skin and flesh are removed from the beans before they are dried). Handlebar Coffee was founded in Santa Barbara in 2011 but two former professional cyclists, and the couple now operate two coffee shops with a third on the way later this year.

A fine Honduras cup, richly nut-toned with a butterscotch throughline and a plush mouthfeel.
