Apple Cider, Punchy Black Currant
These are not your typical Sumatra coffee. Usually known for producing beans with exceptionally heavy, earthy character, Honey Process completely transforms the profile into a punchy, black currant and curiously cidery cup. After stripping coffee cherries of their skin, the usual process in Sumatra is to fully wash the beans, stripping them of their fruit coating entirely. With Honey Process, the sticky fruit pulp, i.e. the “honey” is left on the bean to dry and ferment in the cool night air.
Honey Process is a bit rare because it’s more risky for the producer. By letting the fruit naturally ferment, you leave your precious harvest to the whims of the microbes and mother nature. The reward however is a very unique and curious coffee profile that few others can match: sweet apples, cider and a brightly punchy finish of dark fruits.
Hope you enjoy it!
Pronounced flavors of apple and cider
Our roaster recommends roasting this coffee more towards the middle to preserve the cider and apple sweetness.
Mellow acidity and sweetly preserved tropical fruit.
No pre-Ground beans?
All of our coffees come whole bean. We know it’s inconvenient but once ground, coffee sheds its flavour fast. If you care enough about coffee to get freshly roasted beans, then you owe yourself a good burr grinder.
