About the bean

Not surprisingly, this is a sweet offering!

Honey processing is the middle ground between washed processing and natural/dry processing: the cherry peel is removed but some amount of the sticky, honey-like mucilage remains while the beans dry.

Honey-processed beans are assigned a colour to indicate the amount of light the bean is exposed to during drying. These particular beans are “yellow honey,” meaning that they dried after one week of exposure to light and are the fastest drying of the honey-processed beans.

Our Nicaragua Fair Trade Organic SHG EP Yellow Honey comes from the 25 de Marzo Cooperative, which is made up of around 49 members, 15 of whom are women, cultivating 140 hectares of coffee. The main varieties grown are Caturra and Catuai.

Expect a round body, bright acidity and lemon-like aftertaste.

Roast recommendation: City+ to Full City+. For an explanation of our different roasts, see here.
