There was a thank you note from the founders of Send Me Some Joe letting us know that this month’s charity cause was Volunteers of America to support Operation Backpack, a program that helps kids with back to school supplies.
They even threw in several Hershey’s Kisses!
Everything in my box!
St. Thomas Roasters Honduras Fair Trade Organic ($16) I got two 8 ounces bag of coffee beans from Honduras Fair Trade Organic. They’re stored in brown paper bags to preserve their quality.
Since our order comprised two bags of the same coffee, I checked to see if there was a discernible difference in bean appearance. The consistency was very even across bags.
There was some roast variation from bean to bean to bean, but this was a versatile medium roast.
The beans have a beautiful scent. They are fruity and light, much more vibrant than roasty.
Lots of character in these beans, too!
I thought this brewed up into one of the better everyday coffees I’ve had. It exhibits some of the fun character I expect in Central American beans — some fruity notes, a decent body with gentle roasting characteristics, and a balanced acidity.
That beautiful, rich, black color, it’s perfection in a cup! I thought this made a wonderful “donut shop” cup of coffee. It was very balanced and centered, with no bitterness. These qualities also make it a great bean for using in expresso, as you can make a potent cup without worrying about intensifying bitterness.
This is indeed the perfect package! Coffee beans and chocolate is always a great combination!
Honduras Fair Trade Organic coffee was a great choice for this month’s Send Me Some Joe box! They arrived fresh and well roasted, plus they came in two separate bags, so I can leave one sealed til I need it, or I can even share if I want. It’s also good to know that we’re helping local businesses and charities through this subscription!
