A Gift of God...

I am excited to offer two special coffees this year from our long time friend and coffee farmer, Luis Alberto Balladarez.  Both coffees are from his award-winning farm called Un Regalo de Dios and are of the variety called Pacamara. The difference in the two lies in the processing of the coffee cherries after they are picked.  I think you will agree that it is very interesting how much processing can impact the final taste of the coffee.

This coffee was processed using the “honey” method.  The coffee is picked and the outer fruit pulp is removed but it is not scrubbed off completely which leaves a honey-like stickiness on the bean.  The coffee is then dried on raised beds for about 21 days. The taste is fruity but there is still a distinct brightness and elegance that we would see in a traditionally washed coffee.
