Coffee Info

Both Francisca and Oscar believe in preservation of the environment. They were one of the first pioneers of high-quality honey and natural process coffees in Central America back in 2009 when they started experimenting with special processes. Water use at the mill is minimal, since their coffees do not undergo the washed process. During the harvest of their coffees they will measure the brix content in the coffee cherries to determine the best time to pick their coffees to obtain the utmost sweet and fruit forward profile.

Does this coffee have honey in it?

No. Honey processed coffee is dried with the skins removed but with some of the fruit pulp (mucilage) still adhering to the beans. This coffee is classified as black honey, meaning the coffee is rotated every 24 hours, as opposed to yellow or red which is turned every hour or several times a day.
