This delicious red honey processed coffee has balanced acidity and a creamy body, and comes from a small farm in the Andean region of Colombia.
Region: Albán – Cundinamarca (Colombia)
Producer: Orlando Fierro
Variety: Caturra, Tabi
Altitude: 1,600 masl
Aroma: Intense honey/vanilla, dried peaches
Flavour: Roast Cacao, Chocolate Finish
Process: Red Honey
As part of the red honey process, the coffee cherry is partially pulped and removed, but a layer known as the “mucilage” remains on the bean. This sticky, slimy layer has a similar consistency to honey (hence the name).
The bean is then left to dry with the mucilage still intact, which imparts more sugar and makes the coffee sweeter. The result is a cup with a smooth, delicious body that has a more “syrupy” flavour than classic washed coffees, but also more intensity than natural processed coffees, too.
