Our Take

As espresso, this coffee had a nice balance of brightness, fruit, and depth, with a naturally creamy texture.

We recommend this as a straight espresso, or with milk if you enjoy the mild balance of Honduran coffees with a rich body, and fresh fruit complexity.

Dune holds some sentimental values for us, which you can read more about in our Dune Coffee Roasters Review.

We’ve enjoyed all the coffees we’ve tried from Dune so far, so you should definitely hit up Dune Coffee Roasters for more great coffees.
