Last week KCcoffeegeek had our first guest post by the awesome Stacey Lynn of www.staceyscoffee.com. She did a fantastic job and I wanted to add my 2 cents to her review, too. The coffee she reviewed was Equator Coffees & Teas Honduras COMUCAP, a fair trade organic coffee. This coffee is a mix of varietals grown in the 1219-1585masl elevation range. It’s a washed coffee with tasting notes of “cola, brown sugar, nutmeg” from Equator. COMUCAP is a women’s cooperative located in Marcala, southwestern Honduras. Read a lot more about this co-op at Equator’s website! You can buy this coffee for $15/12oz bag. 1
I found this coffee to have a ton of cola flavors. There is some soft, round acidity that reminded me of orange juice, but this coffee is a cola bomb from beginning to end. It’s sweet, develops and changes nicely as it cools down, and is an easy drinker. It’s a little dry on the finish, but the cola aspect was delicious and varied from cherry cola to regular. The thought of flat cola may be unappealing to a lot of people, but it’s really delicious, in my opinion, in the context of coffee as there is some spiciness in there, some caramel… delightful!
