I lead a very busy life and I need a coffee that can keep up with me. It seems very normal for people to have different coffees for different reasons, but I’d rather have something consistent in the midst of a dynamic life. I need a coffee I can get to know, a coffee that can meet me where I am. I love the Honduras Miraflores; it literally reminds me to take a step back and look at the flowers.
In the café, Miraflores is a beautiful shot, syrupy molasses that becomes toffee with milk. As espresso alone, it coats the tongue and leaves a pleasant aftertaste that I’m excited to serve to customers. After work, it becomes my dessert cappuccino; the caramelized sugars are highlighted and I sometimes forget I’m drinking coffee.
Miraflores really shines for me at home when I make slow pour overs to wake up with my wife. Our furry friends recognize the routine and greet us in the morning. Nothing beats such a great coffee with great company, in and out of the coffee shop.
