Honduras - Liquidambar estate washedHorsham Coffee Roaster
Tasting Notes: Dark Chocolate, Cocoa, Cherry and Brown Sugar
Brewing: This coffee works well with all filter brewers and espresso. For filter we recommend a 1 - 16 brew ratio, and for espresso a 1 - 2.5 brew ratio.
The farm employs 18 members of staff and 12 more in the harvest. Until recently, this was spread across 28 hectares of production, but this has now grown into 45 acres with coffee trees following a programme of new planting, with the remaining 15 hectares under their ownership remaining dedicated forest.
During harvest when the coffee is at its optimum ripeness, cherry is collected manually by men and women, careful to collect only the ripe fruits. Then it is transported to the washing station to be pulped and washed. The following day it is brought to a drying area for a controlled sun drying on African beds, which takes about 12-15 days depending on the ambient temperature. When the coffee reaches 12% humidity it is removed from the tables, stored and then milled for export.

Works really well with my Jura coffee machine. Not too strong, ideal to mix with milk. Service was fast and spotless. I love the new bags!
