In the roaster, we are focusing on primarily a Conductive heat transfer to highlight the beautiful tastes of this beautiful and unique Dehydrated Honey Process. The producer, Carlos Pola, holds the coffee cherry in porous bags to dehydrate the fruit before using minimal water to remove the cherry and allow the seeds to dry. This results in a more efficient fermentation which is also more sustainable for the production, processing more coffee without investing in building more raised beds. The end result is an exceptionally deep and resonant coffee that brings warm notes of cocoa and is round and nostalgic in character. We will do what we can to highlight those strengths. Given its development being further than our other coffees, use less contact time or cooler water than with Fruta or Flora for best results.
