A vibrant and juicy profile with floral aromatics makes way to a syrupy texture and sweet, layered flavours of dark chocolate and strawberry.

COFFEE STORY
This Red Honey processed mixed variety of catuai and villalobos comes to us from producer Ricardo Perez’s' farm Santa Lucia and is processed at his family-owned micro-mill, Helsar de Zarcero which we have worked with for over 8 years now. In Costa Rica, they rarely use fermentation tanks to remove the pulp, instead, a centrifugal washer spins the mucilage off the bean allowing control over the amount of fruit or “honey” left on the seed during processing. The red honey leaves close to 50% of the fruit mucilage or honey during fermentation.

My new favourite

Love this coffee. I can't recall if I've ever had filter Santa Lucia, but this espresso roast was wonderful--dark and dynamic. Full and rich. So nice for the winter.
