This is a double honey processed bean, and this process gets its name from the sticky, honey-like feel the bean has before being dried. Once a coffee bean is separated from its cherry, it’s left covered in a mucilage layer that will continue to reabsorb moisture from the air and become sticky once dried. Honey processed coffee showcases a distinct sweetness which is often paired with fruity undertones. The sugars and acidity in the mucilage play a key role in the development of these qualities as throughout the drying period, the sugars in the mucilage become more and more concentrated, and then these sugars begin to soak through to the coffee bean.
This extremely aromatic and sweet coffee sourced from Vinhal Farm in Brazil is a great addition to our Black Label range. Featuring tasting notes of Sicilian lemon, blueberry and walnut it is perfect for an aromatic pour over or filter style coffee.
