Single Origin Filter Roast - Honey Process
- Green tea
The remote locations of the nation’s smallholders, who produce 85% of the total coffee for the country, combined with historically poor infrastructure has made the transition to specialty difficult. Nonetheless, the country is working towards innovative solutions that will hopefully lead to better quality coffee and improve livelihoods for the nation’s smallholder coffee producers.
Filter roast. Suitable for pour over, Aeropress, drip machines and plunger.
What does honey process mean?
This method involves the fresh coffee cherries being de-pulped, but allowed to dry without washing. Some of the fruit remains, but not nearly as much as natural process. Most of the cherry is gone, but the remaining golden, sticky mucilage is reminiscent of honey, which is how it gets its name.
One benefit for producers is that honey process uses less water. Allowing the fruit to dry on the bean means it can be physically removed at the mill rather than be washed off, which is typical of washed processes. Honey processed coffees tend to be more complex than their washed counterparts, but not as fruity or as intently sweet as natural coffees.
WIDE OPEN ROAD is more than a song title, it’s a mood, a state of mind, it conjures a narrative and story of how the Brunswick based roastery want to travel through the world. To this day that narrative drives their decisions, it directs them as they navigate all the changes, the hardships and the joys that come with building something that you care about, something you hope other like minded souls will get on board with and add their creative energy to, a community of people who love to see things transformed and help to grow what is essentially an intangible idea, a Wide Open Road.
