As you may have noticed, I have recently tried several blends from Rost & Co., the artisan roastery based in Helsinki, Finland. This is the last one I got for now: Honduras Filter.
On the bag the company offers the following information:
- Origin: Honduras, Ocotepeque, Co-op Cocafelol.
- Altitude: 1100–1750 meters.
- Processing: washed.
As for the tasting notes, they state (again, my translation): Nutty, soft, cocoa-like.
That’s it! That is exactly what you get. I would say the nuttiness is probably the main player. It is accompanied by a pleasant, soft acidity and a hint of cocoa, or maybe even some milk chocolate. Flavor-wise, this blend is pretty simple and straightforward, but in a good way. Overall, it is well-rounded and medium-mild.
In my opinion, Honduras Filter would be an excellent blend to have first thing in the morning. It paired extremely well with my daily breakfast pancake.
