Ceremony Coffee Roasters:Honduras San Marcos
When it comes to great coffee, Ceremony knows a thing or two. Ceremony’s head roaster Andy Sprenger brewed up some Ceremony coffee to become a two time U.S. Champion Coffee Brewer. We can affirm that his roasting is equally amazing. After the green coffee arrives in Annapolis, Ceremony roasters set about honing a new roast profile for that crop of beans. Their goal is to understand the bean that they are working with and bring out its individual character and inherent qualities.
Honduran coffee has suffered a rocky past, not always being a reliable region for sourcing coffee. Producers have worked overtime to change that perception, and the results are undeniable. San Marcos is a small lot from several 3-4 hectare farms in the Department of Lempira. The lot was washed and patio dried at the Beneficio Santa Rosa to produce a super clean, sweet coffee.
