A breathtaking Honduran coffee that has won and placed top three for America’s Best Cold Brew Competition, Honduras Kingdom Growers can be found on the Montecillos Mountain Range’s extraordinary slopes, where a cooperative of small coffee growers are dedicated to producing high-quality, sustainable coffee as a community. Each year, the Honduras Kingdom Growers cooperative works with nearly 200 small farm holders and provides them with access to an expanding eco-friendly knowledge base––this gives the farm holders a variety of training and farm-management resources, including processing and milling techniques to ensure a fantastic bean is produced.

Honduras Kingdom Growers farmers use teamwork to produce more yields while simultaneously raising income for the people’s benefit. In Honduras, high-grade, specialty coffee is an ever-growing need. Thus, the Honduran farms range from one to twelve acres in size and spread between elevations of 4,000 to 5,2000 feet. Bean lots are hand-picked and processed together to ensure the highest quality cup.

La Paz, Comayagua, Santa Barbara, and Intibucá are locales within the Montecillos region––IHCAFE (The Honduran Institute of Coffee) defines the peachy Montecillos as one of the six major coffee-growing regions in Honduras.

Cupping Notes: Well balanced, sweet citrus fragrance, good acidity with sweet orange flavor, molasses, and a creamy body and finish.

I'm not a qualified coffee taster; my taste buds were ruined long ago by tobacco use. I cannot distinguish all those nuances of which you speak, "fruitiness", "chocolaty", essences of this and that. I can however discern bitterness, sweetness, boldness, and aftertaste. That being said, I like the Honduran coffee very much. I would describe it as sweet, full-flavored, mild acidity, and clean finish. Roasting with electric contact roaster, 240 C degrees for 15 minutes, beans are dark chocolate brown and slightly oily-looking.

I've recently gotten in to cold brew, and have roasted approximately 10 different beans for brewing such. I came across this and bought 3 pounds. I'm really glad I did, because this is by far the best of all of them! This makes an amazing cold brew coffee! I roasted 226 grams (in my Gene Cafe) to FC (just prior to 2nd crack), and 226 grams to FC+ (just in to 2nd crack) and blended them together. It made the best cold brew I've had yet!

Quite a pleasant smooth taste. I don't get much of the complexity that others mention, though - it's pleasant but a bit boring. Going a little bit into second crack with an SR540, used for espresso.

This is a complex bean that home roasters will find fun to experiment with. I was able to vary the temperature ramp up got some really distinct cupping notes. I have discovered several methods to bring the moisture out of the beans by degrees of temperature and duration and our beta testers were surprised that the same coffee beans could yield such different profiles I believe the extreme higher altitude and alkalinity of the soil gives this bean its special flavors

Sweet taste with some fruitiness. The beans have defects. I have to remove some defective beans from every batch. Once I found a small rock. Otherwise, the coffee still tastes great.

Roasting with Gene Cafe, about 1 minute after first crack. Bold and full bodied flavor. Not getting the fruitiness mentioned above, but it might need to rest a bit longer or I might need to roast darker. Bought a 3 lb bag to sample, and am back to get more.

I can see why this bean is rated the best for cold brew! It's AMAZING! Hot or cold, you cannot go wrong. I roasted half to medium, after first crack, and the other half to a dark. (240 C and then down to 200C after first crack). I preferred the medium roast, but still enjoyed the darker roast. Flavors were smooth and silky, bold and complex! It was such a nice bean to roast.

I love this coffee, I use it specifically for my cold brew concentrate. I’ve tried several others but this one is superior. Excellent cup or glass.
