About The Coffee
Brazil Natural 17/18 NY 2/3 SSFC
Brazil is a well-known coffee producing giant. They source around one-third of the world's coffee, making them the largest coffee producer in the globe! Of course, most of this is lower grade Arabica. However, this country is capable of producing specialty coffees.
This particular type is a standard specialty quality coffee. It is dry-processed, meaning the beans are patio-dried while they are still in the cherry. Since the coffees are dried in contact with the sweet mucilage, the coffee's cup profile will be heavy in body, sweet, smooth, and complex.

Honduras SHG EP
The country of Honduras is a suitable location for coffee harvesting. The soil, climate, and conditions in Honduras are the same as neighboring countries. There is a range of coffee quality from Honduras; the country can produce a lower-cost Central American blender coffee, to high-grown specialty lots that rival more popular Central American coffees. This particular type is more complex than its HG counterpart; thus making it a specialty coffee.
In the past, Honduran coffee growers trafficked their beans into Guatemala; where they would sell for a higher price, because of Guatemala’s coffee reputation. After government tax on coffee exports started to play a role in the coffee business, the country boosted production and dramatically improved their coffee quality. Since then, demand has increased and selling coffee across the border has become unnecessary. Presently, coffee producers and Honduras government have made it a mission to improve the quality of coffee. Laws have been passed giving fiscal incentives to coffee producers and highways have been built to access remote coffee growing regions.
