Honey-Processing -A Pretty Sweet Process

 Honey-processing is a way to dry coffee beans while they are still covered in a sticky layer called mucilage. No, the process does not actually use honey, but the process gets its name from the honey-like glistening appearance of the mucilage that's naturally on the beans. This process started in Costa Rica as a way to save water and make the coffee taste sweeter and more complex and we are so happy it exists! The cold winds in Inga help dry the coffee beans just right, keeping a lot of the beans' natural flavors, which in turn makes the coffee taste sweet and rich. Typically, honey-processed coffee takes about 15 to 25 days to dry. Gabe describes in his behind the scenes that ours takes 20-40 days.
