Special Edition Roast - Honduran Onix

Earlier this year, we got in touch with Sean from the Honduran Coffee Alliance. His company works to connect farmers in Honduras to coffee roasters and we were excited he found his way to us.

Historically, we have worked with importers to find our coffee selection but this was the first time we worked directly with a farm to bring in a batch of coffee. This also happens to be the first Honduran coffee we have had in store.

This coffee came to us from a farm (right here!) in Honduras run by Onix Said Lira Vallecillos. We will be sharing more of their story and information in the coming weeks.

This is a super tasty coffee which has a unique quality of roasting darker at lighter temperature points — meaning we roasted this to a light level but the appearance and flavor are more in line with a medium roast.

Taste and More

The coffee has a smooth, sweetness with tart apple and peach notes along with a touch of caramel and chocolate. Overall, we have found the flavor to be very refreshing and easy to drink. We’ve found this coffee works well both hot and in a cold brew.

We will be offering this coffee on its own for $12 for 12oz and $15 for 16oz and as part of our Hartford espresso roast.
