Honduras COMSA SHG EP Organic Fair Trade
The wellbeing of humans is foundational to the Café Organico Marcala, S.A. (COMSA) philosophy and educating more than 1,500 producer-members to successfully live in harmony with nature is everywhere at COMSA. Traceability is fundem to the Marcala region, which is a protected designation of origin (DENOMINACION DE ORIGEN CAFE DE MARCALA); meticulous post-harvest hand sorting of cherry; cherry floating to remove less dense beans; proper fermentation; long drying times; and a healthy dose of the COMSA philosophy and training.
This juicy coffee has notes of citrus in the nose, subtle flavors of apple and hazelnut, and a light, clean, almost sweet finish.
Central American coffees may use the term EP (European Prep) to indicate screen size (15-18), in addition to SHB (Strictly Hard Bean), SHG (Strictly High Grown), or HG (High Grown) to refer to the highest grade of coffee based solely on elevation.
