The farmers of the El Jilguero cooperative listen to the local birds sing as they harvest and mill their coffees together. In fact, the name El Jilguero is derived from the nature preserve that borders many of these farms in La Paz, Honduras. Farmers that care about the environment take very good care of their own plants, and as a result we get to enjoy some exquisite coffees that perfectly reflect the vibrant landscape! El Jilguero brews an incredibly dynamic cup. An earthy note of bell pepper leads off the profile, giving way to a full-bodied chocolate flavor that provides just the right amount of weight. There's a hint of citrus at play as well, enough to add some definition to this smooth and savory brew. This coffee has a real strong presence, but maintains a complexity of flavors, making it the perfect additon to our Classic Profile line-up. We hope you enjoy it!

Great cup

By far my favorite in He classic lineup. Really satisfying made in the French press

An interesting combination of tones/flavors. Worth a try.

This coffee was pretty much as described. I use a French press for preparation. Personally, I prefer a darker roast, but the flavor of this coffee is very good for a medium roast coffee.

Light. Smooth. A unique flavor or two in there. Very good.

Very Nice!

I find that I’m a huge fan of Columbian coffees, but with that said I would have to rate this one as being right up there. Unique in both taste and aroma. Would purchase again!

A great addition to the Classic line

My second favorite, I think, after Waykan. Smooth, strong centered flavor, with just enough around the edges to keep it interesting. I was able to get a balanced-not-bitter espresso shot right off the bat.

Very straightforward

The flavor was as described. Satisfying peppery flavor with a pleasant chocolate bitterness. My first classic bag, still trying to decide if I'm a fan of the classic line.
