About the Process
Honey Processed
The name is a bit misleading as people tend to associate honey with bees or a honey-like flavour profile. Instead, the term ‘honey’ refers to the ‘mucilage’ (sticky substance) left on the coffee bean in the process.

Black Honey
Black honey is the most complex, laborious, and expensive. This is because it takes the longest time to ferment and takes up space on the drying beds for up to twice as long compared to yellow & red honey processing.
Dry time: 15 days
Technique: covered by a black plastic tarp while turned on raised African-style beds. 
Flavour profile: full-bodied, sweet with fruity/pulp depth.
