Teasia sources their beans from San Pedro de Copán from a cooperative called Cooperativa Cafetalera Capucas Limitada (COCAFCAL). San Pedro de Copán is located in Western Honduras, within a close proximity to the Guatemalan border. Unsurprisingly, coffees from this area share many characteristics with Guatemalan beans. San Pedro de Copán boasts altitudes between 1400-1600m. Classified as strictly high grown, these beans mature more slowly, allowing a longer time with which to develop their flavor. In addition to ideal altitudes, Copán benefits from mineral rich clay soils and a suitable climate for the growth of coffee.
What makes Honduran Copán Coffee special?
Thanks to the high altitudes in which these beans are grown, Honduran Copán coffee has an extremely well developed flavor profile. A delicate nutty aroma only hints at the array of flavors to come. Notes of roasted nuts and fruit, a honey toned sweetness and a bright, zesty acidity are perfectly balanced in this brew. As the taste fades, you're left with a clean aftertaste with subtle hints of that zesty bite, which is now more discernible as lemon. This one is perfect for black coffee drinkers, as it would be a crying shame to mask the numerous intricacies encompassed within this complex cup.
