Honduras Lempira Green Coffee Beans (Fair Trade), 1 Lb. Bag
Certified Organic and Fair Trade. The Lempira is the currency of Honduras, and also a coffee region producing excellent beans. Poverty is a huge problem for many rural farmers in Honduras. Fair Trade pricing helps put food on the table and brings needed resources to the coffee growing communities for equipment and infrastructure which in turn has really helped improve the quality of coffees from Honduras. Strictly High Grown at elevations between 1500 and 2000 meters the Lempira coffee is clean and tasty with low acidity and a very mild finish. A good coffee for a lighter roast because it has some nice light apple fruity notes with a chocolate caramel finish. Coffee tree varieties are Catuai, Caturra, Typica, and Bourbon. The Honduras Lempira is also a great blender. With its low acidity it can help mellow a blend that comes in too bitter and acidic. We like a light to medium roast as a single origin cup, but will do nicely in blends with a darker roast.
