Honduras Siguatepeque El Jaguar
Honduras Siguatepeque from El Jaguar has the delightful aroma of sweet milk chocolate in a cup. In fact, it brings back childhood memories of cups of a popular coco mix called Swiss Miss! There is a beautiful deep satisfying aroma here that warms me right up. The first sip hits your tongue with a big, bold, juicy punch of peanut brittle and slowly settles into spicy flavors that hint at clove and peppercorns.
This rich roast of Honduras has a delightfully spicy mouthfeel for a medium-bodied coffee! The finish starts sweet, with flavors of toasted sugary caramel, and evolves into spicy cedar and hops in your mouth. These flavors linger on delightfully with a smooth, satisfying finish. Honduras El Jaguar will be an absolute "must-have coffee" for those last summer sunny days!

Honduras RFA Siguatepeque El Jaguar is sourced from members of La Cooperativa Cafetalera Siguatepeque Limitada formerly known as La Cooperativa de Horticultors Siguatepeque Limitada (COHORSIL), which was formed in 1980 by a group of vegetable farmers who decided to diversify their farms and began growing coffee.
Due to the high altitude and the prime weather conditions in the municipality of Siguatepeque, Honduras, COHORSIL started exporting specialty coffee to the international market in 2001. The wet and dry mill at COHORSIL has a certification in quality management systems from the International Organization for Standardization (ISO-9001). COHORSIL also has an organic fertilizer production plant that uses coffee pulp as the base ingredient and California earthworms to promote decomposition.
