Honduras High Grown
Strong and bitter, round and creamy, notes of caramel and chocolate.
Bourbon, Caturra, Typica
Corica has especially selected a Honduran coffee from the department of Copan, located in the eastern extremity of the country. This region is renowned as an archeological site for Maya remains. It's a 100 % High Grown coffee (HG), cultivated at 1000 to 1250 meters of altitude. At this elevation, fresh winds skim along the mountain ridges and the nights are cold. These lower temperatures and the shadow from the nearby forests allow the coffee beans to ripen at a very slow pace. This ensures that the flavors are optimally developed. And that's exactly the opposite of what mass producers have to offer: They cultivate coffee plants at a low altitude, where the temperatures are higher, to speed up the maturation of the coffee bean . This technique is most detrimental to the development of flavor. This biologically cultivated coffee has been handpicked in two to three sessions and then washed with clear water.
All this effort results in a strong, beautifully round cup of coffee with pleasant notes of caramel and chocolate.
