Taking great care, the coffee is harvested when the fruit is fully ripe, one cherry at a time. This is a blend of Caturra, Bourbon, Parainema, Lempira and Catimor varietals. Processed using a Wet Mill and a non mechanical method for removing the mucilage and dried on Raised African Beds.
In order to get it's full sweet potential with notes of Cinnamony Mexican Chocolate, Sweet Apricot, and hard Caramel, try brewing at 203-205 degrees at a 1/16 ratio. Great as a pour-over or french press.
