Costa Rica Cumbres del Poas (black honey microlot)

12.00 Ounces

Product Description

Francisca and Oscar Chacon produced this black honey organic microlot in the Central Valley region of Costa Rica. Their mill pioneered natural and honey processed coffees in the region. While natural processing leaves the whole coffee cherry on the seed (coffee "bean") while drying, "honey" processing removes the fruit peel and leaves just the sweet and sticky pulp. (It doesn't involve honey at all!)

Not only do these methods preserve water (by providing an alternative to washed processing), they also offer up coffees that are both more delicate and complex. Variations in honey processing yield different results. Black honey processing has the longest drying time (24 hours) of all the Las Lajas coffees and the result is a stunningly sweet espresso, a creamy drip coffee, and a juicy iced coffee that is perfect for the transition between winter and spring. 

Black honey coffees are better the sooner they're roasted after the green beans arrive, so we only bought ONE bag of this special microlot. You don't want to miss it.
