Rob Says: We have been buying honey processed coffees since the day we started our own roastery in 2010. The last couple of years we see more and more honey’s and also an improvement in quality of this type of coffees.

But what is Honey processing? Remember that the mucilage of the coffee cherry is sticky and slimy, so it is sometimes called “honey”. During the Honey Process, coffee is dried with some or all of the mucilage remaining on the parchment encasing the seed. Coffee cherries are picked, sorted, depulped, and then moved to drying patios or beds for various periods of time. White, black, yellow or red honeys are variations on the theme.

THIS COFFEE IS FORSEEN FOR THE END OF JUNE OR BEGINNING OF JULY
