This coffee will be fresh roasted for you. We expect Mela Coffee Roasting Company will roast and ship this coffee in 1-2 business days depending on their roasting schedule.
This is the Honduras Las Capucas brought to you by Mela Coffee Roasting Company. Grown by the various small holder producers in the Copan region at 1,450 - 1,700 meters, this Organic certified and fully washed coffee is a perfect example of why we love coffees from Honduras. The cup is rich and full bodied with notes of deep chocolate and roasted nuts.
I did not enjoy this one as much as the first coffee I was sent. It was still good. But I found the roast to be a little dark and the taste to be a little heavy. If that makes any sense haha. Still a good coffee. Just not as good as the first one.
Love this coffee! Honestly, everything about it is delicious. The aroma of the beans, the taste of the Brew. So good. Really like this pick.
Great taste and smell. Enjoyed having a cup and could drink it all day!
The flavor of the coffee is good, but it is too acidic for me.
Using a tried and true Aeropress recipe, the flavor tastes really underwhelming, and also a bit burnt.
I enjoyed this coffee it was easy to drink
Love the flavor and very smooth finish.
I enjoyed the chocolate notes and fullness of the coffee. I did like that it was smooth as well, but would have preferred it to have a little bit more smoothness. Almost a velvet texture would be amazing. I would like to see my next option be more of a light to medium roast with a lot of complexity showing notes of fruitiness and citrus. I’m open to any suggestions as I will leave the decisions to the experts.
Liked it better than my first order. Definitely lives up to it's description!
Thought it was great! Still learning the brewing process, but really enjoyed this one. Would love to branch out and try some similar flavors.

Good but not as good as the first two.
Luke and Sarah
Great beans and great roast. Just right for Chemex, or other methods.
My wife and I were pretty disappointed in this one. It smells and tastes like bad diner coffee.
Love this coffee. Very nice smooth flavor.
This is one of the best coffees I have ever had. It smells wonderful, and has an amazing and full taste to it! It is very fresh, and is just all around delicious. I will definitely purchase more of this in the future.
Love it just out of the pot After taste and as it cools not as good
But over all a good coffee
Very smooth. Darker roast than the DRC but I really liked it. Slightly more complex. Roasty and nutty
This coffee has a lot of chocolate flavor and has a very clean finish. It was very easy to dial this one in for espresso. However, a lot of the flavor of this coffee is lost if diluted with milk for a latte or with water as an Americano. This coffee would likely make for good cold brew and pour over, though I haven't tried either brew method yet.
I love this coffee! The flavor is mellow and full bodied. I love the hint of chocolate and roasted nuts!
This is a great versitile coffee. Frech press / drip / espresso it has been great. I feel that you need a bit more coffee than some to get the full flavor and body that I want out of my morning coffee. But once I figured out the proportions it is a good cup.
WHY IS THIS ROASTED SO POORLY?
why is it from July 26th? Out of 3 coffee, all them have been stale, roasted poorly, and near flavorless.
Really enjoyed this one. I liked the robustness and distinctive flavors.
Appears to be a bad roast. Dark, burnt smell.
Rich chocolate tones with hint of nuttiness. Full bodied. Roast dark side of medium. Very good as pour over, even better as french press. Classic non-adventureous coffee for american palate. An excellent breakfast utility coffee. Would like to try something a bit more adventureous next time.
Deliciously rich and full bodied
Lacked depth of flavor. A little too mild mannered.
Really good! Perhaps this might be my fav so far!
Very good. Mellow and well-rounded while still being bold and rich. Makes a good cold brew.
Did not find it very flavorful
Did not care for this one much. Didn’t seem to have much flavor.
Very good flavor. Enjoyable
Over-roasted. Definite burnt flavor. Not a fan.
Smooth. Could easily drink this without cream. Bonus points for being organic. I realize that I do not care for the smokey flavor in the DCR special dark. . I like this better. More like this, please.
I liked this. No perfumy taste. Smooth with no bite but lots of flavor.
Felt like it brewed well in an aero press and drip. Not too bitter with a clean finish.
Aero press - 12/200 (200F)
Drip - 18:1 (was better when preheating water)
This is my 2nd favorite coffee that I received. I liked Tony's the best, then this coffee.
Wasn’t getting as much of the full-bodied feel with this one, at least with the pour over I’m using.
The nuttiness sits on the front of the tongue with the chocolate bringing up the back of the sip.
I loved it!
Really good! Let's try something lighter, yet complex, maybe with a North African Origin. Thanks!

I like a lot of different coffees, but this was not one of them. There was almost a strong smoky flavor within the taste that through it off.
A pleasant reminder of diner coffee, in the best of ways.
Wildly overroasted and a very unforgiving bean. I was very surpirsed at how inflexible this bean was with different brewing methods. Extremely oily and brittle as well.
Would be 5 stars, but like the winter Olympics, still waiting for perfection. Had not been impressed with Honduran beans from other suppliers, but this has a wonderful dark chocolate base with lots of mouth filling overtones , and the caramel comes in at the finish. Appreciated the slightly lighter roast as well. Great choice--maybe even 4 1/2 stars! Thanks!!
Earthy and full-bodied. Coffee was freshly roasted and had great aroma. Slightly darker than I usually prefer, though.
My favorite of the three so far,
Not very good
Smooth, with nutty tones in the aftertaste. A slow-grower in the mouth. Slightly more roasted than I prefer, but still a very nice coffee.
The beans smelled great and once ground, was even better. The taste was good, not excellent, but I still enjoyed it. I was able to taste hints of chocolate and the coffee was smooth and clean. I enjoy a more balanced coffee but I would still recommend this coffee to anyone.
A little too much on the chocolate notes. Perfect roast level.
Flavor is subdued and more nutty than expected. My least favorite out of the handful of coffees I have tried on mbox.
I found the taste rather bland, sadly.
My last selection brewed up a little weak so I appreciated the more full bodied nature of this one.
Very good coffee! Would like to try a medium roast next time.
Did not enjoy the first cup, but it eventually grew on me. Has a very earthy and raw taste. Just takes a little bit to get used to. Don't mind sippin on it, but not the best cup of joe I've had.
Delicious. Balanced w/o acidity.
Tastes very earthy, would prefer more chocolate fruit taste
Clear chocolate notes, felt like the nutty notes were often hidden. Much better
Deb & John
We thought it was very bland -I tried using more per pot but it still seemed watery almost.
Smooth taste. Easy to go down! Enjoyed it much more than before.
Smooth taste, more towards my preference. Although i seem to need to add more beans/grinds to make the equivalent taste that I also prefer.
Good. More depth of flavor and/or complexity.
Wouldn't buy this one again. Has a bit of harshness. I shortened the steeping time in my french press from 4 minutes to 3.5 minutes and it was better.
I liked it a bit less than my first one. I’d say it was pretty similar just slightly “duller” in body and flavor.
It's good but I would love something a little more complex, slightly brighter even.
Really tasty and good strength! Definitely getting chocolate
Smooth drinking coffee. Tasted the chocolate but not overwhelming. Nice body.
Very very good! Enjoyed every cup of this coffee, no matter what the time of day or circumstances. It was delightful.
a little boring or weak, not one of my faves
Great tasting coffee. Best yet.
Hands down my favorite coffee so far! It’s rich and has a wonderful chocolate flavor.
