This is a medium-light roast that produces an excellent classic cup with just enough complexity to keep it fun. With a few delicate citrus and floral notes to begin with, a hazelnut-esque nutty richness takes hold for a rich, easy-drinking brew.
The Honduras Comsa manages to bring a lot of interesting complexity, wrapped in a coffee that still does a lot of normal comforting coffee things quite excellently as well. We wanted to really highlight both sides of this coffee, and chose our medium-light profile to walk as fine a line between showing off it's novelty and flattering its normalcy. We hope you enjoy the result as much as we do!
