This Honduran speciality coffee comes from Cooperativa Cafetalera Capucas Limitada (Cocafcal), or Capucas as they are better known. Capucas was founded in 1999 by Jose Omar Rodriguez and takes its name from the local town of Las Capucas.
The journey this coffee takes is one of meticulous care. The cherries, picked at the peak of ripeness, are meticulously processed, washed, and dried in solar dryers. They are then stored in parchment before being transported to the port of Puerto Cortés.
Interestingly, the coffee trees are pruned to a low height so it is easier to pick the cherries. This is made possible through staggered pruning: in the first year they prune to 180cm, 170cm in the second year, 160cm third year and 150cm in the fourth year. Then, when the tree is cut down to the bottom, the trunk is strong enough to support the new growth.
A rich and fruity coffee with tasting notes of cacao, hazelnut and nutmeg, this is not one to miss. This coffee works well in milk-based espresso drinks, aeropress, and moka pot.
