Our first Legendary Collection Coffee comes to us from Honduras. It is a naturally processed coffee that boasts notes of fruit punch, strawberry candy, floral finish. In the first sip, our taste buds are flooded with bright tropical fruit notes ranging from pineapple to sweet mango. The body of the coffee is syrupy and sweet and it reminds us of red vines candy. As the coffee cools it develops juicy mouthfeel that lingers with a pleasant jasmine tea or honeysuckle finish. We love this coffee and think it is the best coffee we’ve served thus far our of our roasting program. It is definitely geared towards the coffee enthusiasts looking for a complex pour over or a nice sipping espresso.
