Honduras Los Robles Single Origin Espresso
CARAMEL APPLE // BUTTERY
A medium roast espresso.
Working with Miguel is full of surprises. Those additional hectares of land on the very top of El Cedral mountain he purchased a couple years ago are now making a larger part of his harvest. At Miguel’s new plot, there are older growth Pacas trees with nice production. This year was a peculiar one for weather, with our first visit exhibiting faster ripening and larger yields. Things ripened way more quickly than usual. Despite this, Miguel’s crop this year is exceptionally clean and sweet.
