What Is Honey Process Coffee Mean?
Coffee cherries are picked and sorted, have their skins and pulps removed like normal but are then dried without washing off the sticky-sweet mucilage. Since honey process beans spend less time in the water than washed beans do, less fermentation occurs, so not as much of the sugar in the bean is converted to acid.
We purchase green beans through Friends of San Lucas out of Eagan, MN. This relationship provides small coffee farmers with a fair price, allowing the farmers to support their families and community.
