Microlot Espresso : Oscar Omar Alonzo

  • Origin: Honduras, Cual Bicicleta COMSA Cooperative
  • Price: ~ 26€/Kilo
  • Blend: 100% Arabica, washed
  • Character: complex, devious and expressive
Preparation

Ground with Rancillio Rocky S, prepared with Rancillio Silvia. The beans are beautiful. Evenly sized and of perfect color. Just perfectly cracked and a joy to look at. They didn't get oily through the weeks I used them. I don't think there's anything you could improve here.

Taste

Tastewise you'll really enjoy what you get. This espresso is an exceptional shapeshifter, a challenge and a big reward. While it won't expand all that in an aeropress or bialetti it still tastes great, even when prepared with a filter. This is easily the best coffee I've tasted in 2015.

Would buy again ?

Already ordered twice. Would do again all the time. I don't think I would ever get bored with those beans.
