We test a lot of coffee here at the Moustache Coffee Club, and even still this week's Las Moritas Honey surprised us with its complex mix of flavors and subtle smoothness. Grown by coffee-expert Don Higinio Gomez in the mountains of Guatemala, these beans carry a distinct flavor that we haven't seen in many of the region's other cups. Don Higinio attributes his coffee's distinct profile to a unique microclimate and the prevalence of pine trees near his coffee plants, and after he expertly honey-processed these beans to leave just the right amount of natural flavor, we agree that there's something special going on at the Las Moritas farm. Where most coffees seem to lean towards fruity or chocolatey, this crop splits the middle perfectly, incorporating a range of flavors into one supremely delicious cup that suits any palate. We can't stop brewing it, and we can't wait to hear what you think!
