Details

"Yes, we're releasing another beautiful COE coffee and this time it's from Honduras! Some of you may be surprised with our selection as we rarely feature Honduras in our line-up. Personally, I love coffee from Honduras but I struggle to find "the good ones." The competition over high quality green beans is extremely tough, but thanks to WATARU & Co., Ltd., we have secured our share to roast in our Nishijin Roastery.

Words cannot express how excited I am to roast this coffee from Santa Barbara, which is a renowned region for producing top quality coffee in Honduras. When a coffee is described as winey, it often refers to sweet, rich aroma and body, and fruitiness of grapes. Meanwhile, the "winey" aspect of coffee from Honduras, in particular Santa Barbara, is noticeable in the acidity. The moment you take a sip, you feel the juicy notes spread in your mouth, followed by the crispness. While the citrus notes are the most dominant, you can taste the grape-like notes unique to the process, and a hint of tamarind sauce.

Just follow your hear and give this amazing offering from Honduras a try!"

A moderate heat progression. We pay careful attention to not burn the outer layer of the green beans towards the second half of the process. Too much heat can produce strong fermented notes, so we aim for a good balance, like refreshing lactic acid notes.

Roasting and Shipping Schedule

We roast all of our coffee in Kyoto, at our Nishijin Roastery, up to twice a week on Monday and Sunday.

We then pack and ship the freshly roasted beans out on weekdays (please note that our fulfilment operation closes on weekends).

The roasting date on your coffee will be between 14 days prior to your order, and while we try our best to ship as younger roast as possible, we actually recommend you waiting at least 1 week after the roasting date to enjoy the fully developed flavor, so if you receive a very fresh roast please let the coffee rest for about a week and give it a try!

*All shipment will be done on the next Wednesday after order is received.
