Costa Rica Finca Don Pepe 12 oz.
An exceptional Costa Rican Catui varietal, honey processed, with notes of tangerine, plum, apple and honey.
We’re excited to share another fantastic micro-lot coffee, this time a honey process from the farm of Jose Franciso Aguilar in San Juanillo, Costa Rica.
The term “honey process” refers to a special drying technique in which the coffee beans are removed from the cherry skin but left in their flesh, or “mucilage”, to dry slowly in the sun. This labor intensive process is a Costa Rican specialty, used to impart extra sweetness, clarity and depth of flavor. “Honey” refers to the sticky quality of these beans as they dry.
