There are coffee types worldwide, but there’s this one that is the best of the best. That’s right, Thelmita’s Specialty Coffee. Honduras is one of the leading coffee exporters; not all coffee exported is considered a specialty coffee. Let’s learn more about Thelmita’s.
What sets a good coffee apart? According to the SCA (Specialty Coffee Association), coffee is specialty coffee if it has zero primary defects and less than five secondary defects. Primary defects include completely black beans, full bitter, dried cherries, fungus damage, fungus matter detected, and severe insect damage. The type of bean has a lot to do with its quality. The well-known coffee types are Arabica and Robusta. The versatility of the Arabica coffee bean makes it the best type for specialty coffee. Thelmita’s coffee is a 100% Arabica coffee, making it stand out from its national competitors.
Why are these characteristics important? These all have an effect on sensory characteristics of coffee. For specialty coffee to achieve its quality, the process must have meticulous attention to detail from beginning to end. Thelmita’s meets all the requirements to qualify as a specialty. Let’s start with the taste; it emulates panela (or brown sugar) or a subtle chocolate flavor. The aftertaste is acidic, subtle and delicate.
Cold brew is one of the greatest beverages ever invented. The way coffee tastes when cold is one way to define if coffee is specialty. The taste you get right after drinking cold coffee must not be bitter, and it must not give you a sickening sensation. Thelmita’s, on the contrary, leaves a delicate taste and a silky sensation on the palate that leaves us wanting more; this brings us to the next point if the coffee is good, it does not leave an upset stomach. Which makes Thelmita’s a champion for leaving us feeling good as new.
The meticulous manner in which everything is handled, from harvesting to roasting, provides the best quality coffee. The work done is what makes Thelmita’s a specialty coffee. Tested by Qgraders and by the general population, 90/100. Whenever you’re drinking a cup of Thelmita’s specialty coffee you’re having the best sensory experience of your life.
