I've got to say that buying this coffee without ever trying it was a huge leap of faith. I had such high hopes that the coffee was as good as people say. I was not disappointed! The coffee and flavor are very complex. Beautiful flavor, I want to keep drinking it! This is my new "go to" for coffee. Highly recommended!!
This coffee is literally "me" in a mug. The flavor profile of the honey is wonderfully, yet boldly subtle; just enough to breakdown the typical acidity you might find in other flavors. Such a beautiful aroma to complement a rising sun on a gorgeous Sunday morning. This is the type of coffee that reminded me why I but from Chosen Bean.
I always enjoyed Honduras. A pleasant alternative to Costa Rican (still my fave). Would highly recommend it.
