This is a really beautiful Honduran coffee. This coffee has won and placed in the top three for America’s Best Cold Brew Competition. Honduras Kingdom Growers coffee is grown on the picturesque slopes of the Montecillos Mountain Range by a cooperative of small, Honduran coffee growers dedicated to the production of high-quality, sustainable coffee as a whole community. Each year the Honduras Kingdom Growers cooperative works with approximately 200 small farm holders, providing them with access to an expanding eco-friendly knowledge base with a variety of training and farm management resources, including proper techniques for processing and milling.

Honduras Kingdom Growers farmers work together with the goal of increasing yields while collectively raising income for everyone’s benefit. Producers here have realized the need for high grade, specialty coffee. The farms generally range in size from 1 – 12 acres and are spread between elevations of 4,000 to 5,200 feet. The lots are handpicked and centrally processed to ensure ideal cup quality. The Montecillos region is comprised of the smaller locales of La Paz, Comayagua, Santa Barbara and Intibuca; it is one of six major, Honduran coffee-growing regions as defined by The Honduran Institute of Coffee, IHCAFE. Montecillos is known for its coffee with fruity, peach and citrus profiles, with a pleasing aftertaste and smooth body. The region is mainly comprised of Bourbon, Catuí, Caturra and Pacas varietals.

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

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.
