About this coffee
Honey process coffee has been popularised for its eco-friendly focus, and uses less water than “natural” or “washed” process coffees. That’s a win! Honey process is a method in which coffee cherries are picked and sorted, have their skins and pulps removed like other types of coffee—but are then dried without washing off the sticky-sweet outer layer of the fruit. Since honey process beans spend less time in water than washed beans do, less fermentation occurs, so not as much of the sugar in the bean is converted to acid.
This coffee is found in the Sítio Bela Vista at Serra do Caparaó, a Brazilian mountain range located between the states of Espírito Santo and Minas Gerais. The Francisco family manage to provide one of the richest and most delightful grains of Brazil for specialty coffees. Their property of 8 hectares counts with 14 thousand coffee trees of varietals such as
catuaí and yellow caparaó.
If you like balanced between sweet and acidic, go for this coffee, perfect with a fresh banana loaf for morning tea. Whatever you do though, be sure to respect the bean and it’s journey into your cup.
