Grown at 1250 metres above sea level on a 70 hectare farm by Fernando Alfaro and Jose Enrique Gutierrez. They meticulously sort  and de-pulp the ripe cherries from the farm and then dry them on African style beds whilst still covered in the murcilage  (known  colloquially as honey). The beans are constantly turned until completely dry, a process which can take up to 24 days. The Black Honey process is considered especially laborious as the high content of sugar in the beans causes them to clump together unless they are constantly moved to allow the coffee to dry evenly. This punctilious process makes for a unique and complex cup with luscious tropical fruit and cocoa notes and is suitable for all methods of brewing.

 Winner of  a 2 star Great Taste Award 2020 in the Cafetiere/Filter Category.
