Description


Our very first Honey Single Origin Plus coffee!

This time, we have selected for you the same beans as Selva, with the only difference being the coffee processing method: the Honey process.

It is a hybrid process that combines elements of both techniques (natural and washed coffee) to create new differentiations in flavor.
Honey process is a method in which the fresh coffee cherries are de-pulped, but allowed to dry without washing. Some of the fruit is still there, but not nearly as much as in the natural process. Most of the cherry is gone, but the remaining golden, sticky mucilage is reminiscent of honey, which is where the process gets it name.

With this method, Miriam Elizabeth Pérez, who runs the farm's operations, uses less water. Allowing the fruit to dry on the bean means that it can be physically removed during milling rather than being washed off as is typical of washed coffees.
