How it Tastes

Imagine biting into thick, milk chocolate coated caramel and then into melt-in-the-mouth buttery shortbread. That's exactly what this lovely single origin Honduras reminds me of, hence the "Millionaire's Shortbread" name.

Taste is a subjective thing, everyone has a different palate, and everyone has a different level of palate development, too.

If you've only recently started to "really" get into coffee, and you just don't get these flavour notes that you read on websites like this, or on the flavour notes on bags of speciality coffee that you buy, just stick with it.

If you carry on developing your palate, you'll find at some point that you start to pick out interesting tastes, which may or may not be present in the taste descriptions.

While you once may have said "Meh, just tastes of coffee", you will probably find yourself saying things like "ooh, wow that reminds me of <insert memorable food item here>, and for me - this is just Millionaire's shortbread.

Cocafelol Co-Operative

Cocafelol is a co-operative of around three hundred smallholder producers within the Ocotepeque department in the west of Honduras.

This is a breathtaking mountainous region spanned by a number of biodiverse and important national parks, and the conditions here, particularly the fertile volcanic soil, are amazing for high quality coffee.

The Cocafelol co-op continually works to assist its smallholder coffee farmers to improve the quality and variety of coffee produced, and has invested a great deal into organic production.

Mmmmm coffee

Love this blend, def ordering again. Been drinking it black as so nice.

Lovely medium/dark roast

Dialled in easily. Opened two weeks after roasting. Great for milkies. Smooth, no dominant or insistent flavours that one gets sometimes (not my preference). Nice caramel and chocolate notes.

enjoyed it thank you and you where right the decaf was perfect for the morning
To my surprise!!!

Great (But Not Amazing) Speciality Coffee

This is a really nice speciality coffee.
Once I'd got my required ratio I tasted the notes mentioned and on occasion really understood the naming of the coffee as Millionaires Shortbread.
It really does have that overall flavor you get when eating a chocolate caramel shortbread.
But as much as I like the coffee and enjoy drinking it, I can't give it a five star rating because it just doesn't have that special quality that some quality coffees have.
It doesn't have enough of those peculiar coffee nuances that make you keep picking the cup up to take another sip just after putting it down.
It's just a really nice coffee that when you drink it you like the flavour.

I'll definitely buy it again, but I'll be trying a few others first

Lovely coffee, smooth, definite shortbread 'on the nose'. Works well in lattes etc. I have a Bambino Plus and Sage Smart grinder, the Team suggested grind size 4/5 for this coffee and it worked for me. I let it degas for 10 days.
