Honduras Cual Bicicleta Natural

The COMSA FTO co-op has a few thousand farmers, and they all pool their coffee together and get paid well for their contributions to the harvest. but the quality each year was declining as more and more farmers joined the co-op, so COMSA started a cupping competition to improve quality.  The farmers with the winning coffee get to sell their coffee as a microlot at auction.  So for the past three years, we've been buying some of the winning coffees instead of buying from the general pool.  They are quite a bit more expensive, but they are traceable back to the exact farmer, and they are rewarding high quality, and they are great coffees.

This is a natural processed coffee, and was rated 90 points and tastes amazing.  The first cracks start late and last much longer than you would expect.  So don't pull the coffee out before the cracks end, but you do want to pull them out as soon as they do.  The coffee will look a little bit darker then you expect, but still tastes light.  Savory tastes of sweet grain, ripe tomato, and dark chocolate turn into sweet tastes of brown sugar and bananas.  The aftertaste is sweet as you notice hints of strawberry and cinnamon.  Because it has both the savory and sweet components, this coffee is particularly interesting to drink and altogether pleasant.  It has a medium body and fruity aroma.
