This coffee is grown in the region of Mare Blanche and is processed differently than most coffee by a method called honey processing. Some of the pulp is left on the bean and then it is fermented for an extended period. Not only does this save water for a country who badly needs it, but also honey processed coffees offer sweeter profiles and fuller bodies. No honey is actually involved in the process. It is called “honey processed” because the drying coffee beans with the pulp left on get sticky like honey.
Roasted on the lighter side, this coffee reveals intense sweet milk chocolate, dry grapefruit, and raisins.
