|Coffee Origin:||Santa Barbara Department, Honduras|

|Review Date:||November 2022|
Blind Assessment: Savory leaning, complexly sweet. Jackfruit, black sesame, freesia, agave syrup, fresh-cut oak in aroma and cup. Savory-sweet structure with juicy, apple-toned malic acidity; crisp, dry Vermouth-like mouthfeel. Quiet finish with notes of jackfruit and black sesame.
Notes: Produced by Roberto Figueroa entirely of the Pacas variety of Arabica, and processed by the traditional washed method (fruit skin and flesh are removed from the beans before they are dried). Flower Child Coffee is a specialty roasted based in Oakland, California. Visit www.flowerchildcoffee.com.
The Bottom Line: A richly nuanced Pacas cup from Honduras, paradoxically both savory yet bright, with undertones of spicy florals.
