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! 

Café Organico Marcala, S.A. (COMSA), is a co-op association of around 640 farmers from the Marcala region, in the department (province or state) of La Paz; they have recently finished constructing a new wet mill, and have been developing women's leadership within their immediate community, resulting in a farmers' market at which members sell home-grown organic produce.
