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 once a day, as opposed to yellow or red honey which is turned every hour or several times a day, respectively.
