Where’s the next coffee coming from?
We often ask ourselves where we can quickly get the next coffee – but where the beans for this coffee come from we ask ourselves far too seldom.
THE BEANS FROM HONDURAS:
Did you know, for example, that the beans for our Bieder & Maier Organic Light Roast come 100% from Honduras? And that Honduras is one of the 10 largest coffee growing areas in the world? And that the inhabitants of this country are called Hondurans?
3 COFFEE REGIONS:
Coffee from all over South America enjoys an excellent reputation. This is where Brazil, the world’s most important supplier of coffee, meets the smallest coffee-growing country, the Galapagos Islands. And in between is Honduras. From November to April coffee is harvested here. This comes mainly from the three largest coffee regions. The Copán region in the northwest, Montecillos in the southwest and Agalta in the centre of the country. Typical for coffee from Honduras is a strong, spicy taste, a pronounced acid structure, a velvety mouthfeel and fine notes of nuts and fruit. The fruits of the coffee plants, which grow at an altitude of 1,000 to 1,500 metres and at 2,000 metres, play a special role. These are known as “High Grown” or “Strictly High Grown” and are exceptionally aromatic.
SPECIAL TASTE IN YOUR CUP:
But you don’t even have to be Honduran to enjoy these exclusive beans! Because only these beans make our Organic Light Roast a very special coffee experience, which you get with every cup of Bieder & Maier.
