This black honey processed microlot is from the Finca El Mango farm in southern Costa Rica, owned and operated by the Ureña Rojas family.
The farm is managed with a sustainable system focused on reducing the carbon footprint, with shade management from mango trees, pollution protection for all the water sources on the farm, and specialized fruit trees to feed wildlife.
This lot utilizes a Black - or “full” honey process, where only the ripest cherries are selected to ensure high sugar content. These are dry pulped with a high mucilage retention and transferred immediately onto raised African beds where they are sun-dried for an average of 12-15 days. All of the milling, grading and bagging is done on site, affording the family complete control of the post-harvest process through to export.
The high altitude and black honey process create a truly exceptional coffee, with notes of honey and blackberry jam. Once you try it you'll keep coming back for more!
