Getting product details...

From Clifton Coffee:

Rich Maple Syrup, Red Grape & Macadamia nuts.

The municipality of San Fernando is located around 24 kilometres from the region’s capital, Ocotal and of the 10,000 residents; the vast majority are coffee farmers. Situated in the Nueva Segovia region at altitudes ranging from 1350 to 1550 metres above sea level, Santa Maria de Lourdes embodies a diverse range of luscious vegetation and wildlife brought about by high levels of annual rainfall.

Honey processed coffees are becoming more popular in Nicaragua and it has started to spread to all the other Central American countries. The mucilage of the coffee cherry is sticky and slimy, so it is sometimes called “honey”. During the Honey Process, coffee is dried with some or all of the mucilage remaining on the parchment encasing the seed. Coffee cherries are picked, sorted, depulped, and then moved to drying beds.

Because there is a little bit of fermentation happening in the short amount of time it takes for the mucilage to dry, coffees processed in this way feature a little more acidity than Pulped Naturals but significantly less acidity than Washed or Natural / Dried-in-the-Fruit coffees.

Yellow Honey is exposed to the most light. Because more light means more heat, this coffee usually takes just about a week to dry.
