New Arrival: Spotlight On Costa Rica Black Honey

Coffee growing on the 12 acre La Esperanza Familia Monge farm located in La Esperanza de Tarrazu, part of the province San José, Costa Rica, is a family business. The father, Rodolfo Monge, has been growing coffee for over 40 years. When his son, Gustavo, joined the business the younger man became interested in creating traceability for their coffee. They built a micro-mill on the farm, so the family now controls all aspects of the coffee beans' processing, from cherry selection to the final bagging. They developed their own method of honey processing for their beans which they call, “Black Honey.”

Costa Rica Black Honey coffee is a great example of honey processing. “Honey processing” is a natural process that uses much less water than the traditional “washed” method. The fruit remains attached to the bean during the drying process and the resulting coffee often retains a very sweet, honey-like flavor.

At a light to medium (City to Full City) roast level, this smooth, silky coffee has a relatively light body with a sweet, herbal aroma and fruit flavors brightened by peach topnotes. A slightly darker (Vienna) roast level brings out more body and even more sweetness. But what we like best is the sweet and rich dried fruit and chocolate finish that just gets sweeter and richer the darker you go. Read More...
