  • Description
Strawberry jam and butterscotch find their way through in the fragrance and the flavor of this Red Honey.          
We had the opportunity this past February to visit Don Joel micro-mill and Finca La Cumbre and see the quality work that Allan was doing here in the West Valley. La Cumbre slopes the hillside surrounding Allan's micro-mill, named after his father, Don Joel. At La Cumbre, mango, banana and sweet lemon trees are used to shade Allan's coffee crop - mostly consisting of caturra.

This is one of three variations of Allans caturra that we've decided to offer on our seasonal coffee menu this year. A red honey process means that 70% of the fruit mucilage is left on the coffee parchment while drying. This lends some very interesting flavour characteristics in the cup, which we've found highlights with white grape, butterscotch and strawberry jam!

This is the third year that Don Joel has been in operation as a micro-mill and his quality blew us away. We were very impressed with the cleanliness and attention to detail that Allan showcased with his coffees. We are so excited to have brought in three separate lots processed in different ways: yellow honey, red honey and a natural process. Each of these coffees possess different flavour characteristics thanks to the variation in processing method.
