Honduras

STUDIO CAFFEINE's approach

Honduras coffees tend to live up to their reputation as “Mild” - Nutty, sweet and heavy body, unlike their neighbors which usually have a complex acidity. We source them as a stable player to the espresso coffee.

Recommended for Blended and Single Origin Espresso
