What’s So Special About These Coffees?

There are 39 Honduran coffees up for grabs, and these aren’t just any old coffees. They were whittled down from 100 after being cupped by a team of international experts. And when we say experts, that’s exactly what we mean: they were led by Rony Gómez, the Head of International Quality Control at the Honduran Coffee Institute (IHCAFE).

All 39 are 85+ lots which were picked in April, May, or June. This means the range includes late harvest coffees, known for their incredible sweetness, complexity, and aroma.

And in just a few weeks, you could be collecting them from your delivery driver.
