Our Espresso Latina blend is a blend of Honduras SHG with a small quantity of highest quality washed Robusta from India. Designed as a traditional Italian style, strong, heavy liquored espresso coffee blend with a thick, creamy after taste. A coffee that doesn’t pull its punches.
Every once in a while Honduras surprises us – coming straight out of the main crop the latest SHG arrival is one of those pleasant surprises. Cupping close to 84pts, this coffee is one not to be missed.
COCAFELOL has been working diligently on behalf of their coffee producers since 2000, providing technical and financial assistance. Its main focus is to produce, process and market high quality and differentiated coffee. During harvest when the coffee is at its optimum ripeness, the product is collected manually before being sent to centralised washing stations for pulping, washing and drying process according to the Quality desired. The organisation is keen to promote sustainable agricultural practices and uses many of the waste products from the process of its coffee to use as organic fertilisers to be used on its members farms.
Powdery body, cocoa herbal and nutty flavours with aftertaste of lemon and languishing creamy mouthfeel are typical here, but the latest arrival has 84.75pts – whilst the coffee itself me be somewhat conventional, the cup profile of this Fairtrade Rainforest certified coffee is anything but. A creamy chocolate body, encased with sugar cane sweetness and toffee flavours outperform any of our expectations. Lashings of sweet caramel in the aroma, with a gentle cocoa aftertaste
