It's unusual to get honey processed coffee from Colombia and this one is delightful. It somehow manages to be clean and funky at the same time. There is gentle, blood orange-like acidity and just a hint of spice to keep things lively. Loving it.
This lot is produced by smallholders from an indigenous reserve in Aponte. Honey processed coffee, when done well, really does offer the best of both worlds. Big sweetness like you'd find in natural processed coffees, but with plenty of complexity too. This one is already proving to be a bit of a team favourite. Pretty sure you'll end up loving it too.
