What is a Honey Process Coffee?
Honey process coffees stand out from the natural and washed processes, being a hybrid combination of techniques. The pulped natural or more known honey process is as the name describes a method in which the cherries are hand picked and selected, then they are depulped and allowed to dry without washing for around 2 weeks. As a result of the drying the cherries are surrounded by a sticky mucilage that resembles honey texture and taste.
What differentiates the honey processed coffee from the washed, asides from the amazing sweet flavor, is saving water. The cupping notes from the honey process coffee is a sweet passion fruit and orange notes, highly balanced to not be overpowering in the taste buds.
