Honduras Montecillos (March 2021)

Regular price $15.00

Honduras, bordered by Guatemala to the west, El Salvador to the south and Nicaragua to the East, is the largest coffee producer in Central America, Though the country has the ideal factors to grow wonderful coffee (fertile soil and high altitude), its infrastructure was not as well developed as its neighbours, resulting in quality control challenges. This meant that most of its coffee was destined for the commodity market.

However, since then, steps have been taken to improve the quality of Honduran coffee (such as the setting up of coffee-tasting laboratory to assist farmers) and there have been more specialty lots coming out of Honduras in recent years.

There are six distinct regions in Honduras: Copán, Montecillos, Agalta, Opalca, Comayagua, and El Paraíso. This month, we are featuring coffee from Montecillos, where coffee is grown between 1,200 to 1,600m, allowing the coffee cherries to ripen slowly to have a sweeter flavour.

We taste notes of stone fruits, particularly cherriesfollowed by warm chocolatey flavours in the cup. This is accompanied by a delicate acidity as well as a medium body which goes down very smoothly.

As our #dYScover beans are roasted specially, and separately from the rest of our offerings, we only have limited quantities per month! If you have ever thought or wondered about specialty coffee from Honduras, do make sure you give this a try soon!

There are so many different types of coffee grown in various regions of the world, with each region tasting very distinct from one another. 

#dYScover, by Yong Seng Coffee, is our attempt at letting you experience specialty coffee from the various coffee-producing regions of the world. Read more about specialty coffee here!

Join us on this journey as we bring in coffee from different regions every month, as we explore the world of coffee together.

A taste of heritage

and fresh perspectives

Yong Seng Coffee specialises in Singapore's favourite - traditional Nanyang coffee, a.k.a. kopi (meaning coffee in Malay). Being the lifeblood of many Singaporeans, we have served our many blends of traditional kopi for over 40 years, in addition to a selection of dry-roasted coffee of various origins.

Today, embodying heritage with every bag, we strive to keep our family's legacy and Singapore's kopi culture alive, while continuously working to expand and refine our offerings to cater to your ever-evolving preferences.


Tried the Arabica Blend and it changed my perspective of white coffee. Ditch your 3-in-1 and brew your own coffee with Yong Seng this CB period.

I ordered all the 6 choices (of Drip Bag Coffee) to try. Arrived yesterday and tried the Signature Blend #1 this morning. Clear indication of roasted & packing dates on each packet. Fresh and full of aroma, highly recommended. Tks!
