Day 14 and I’m enjoying a cup of joe in Central America, specifically Honduras. What I like to do before each coffee tasting is really take in the freshly brewed aroma of each cup. I’ll then take a couple sips and let it sit on my palate so I can sense the true flavor of these single origin coffee.
The first flavor profiles I receive are a scent of nuts and a hint of lemon which are both soft and mild within this coffee. My first sip provided me with a light bitter flavor along with a smoky taste which left me with a mild aftertaste after every sip. If I was to compare the flavor of this coffee it would be close the Costa Rica Coffee but twice as strong in taste and flavor.
PRO TIP: This coffee would pair nicely with a ham and cheese croissant early in the morning.
Today’s coffee is prepared the old fashioned way in the coffee maker. The Brazil Fazenda is smooth with light acidity and has a mild and buttery taste with hints of hazelnut and cocoa.
Highlights: A strong coffee with a smooth taste to it that I really enjoyed. It’s a great coffee for everyday and I would recommend it for someone who doesn’t drink coffee daily too. The cocoa flavor is very enjoyable with every sip you take. The best food to pair with would be a breakfast sandwich on a croissant.
PRO TIP- If you feel the cocoa taste is too strong, add some sugar to balance it out with some sweetness.
Next week, Jose is trying our Burundi which is full-bodied with notes of black tea, sweet apricot, juicy cherry and a tang of orange juice.
