PLUM  /  APRICOT  /  HONEY

Sweetness ●●●○○     Acidity ●●●●○     Body ●●●○○

This coffee is beautifully balanced with a honey-like sweetness defining the cup character, boosted by sweet and tactile plum and apricot qualities. The sweetness isn't over the top, but balances out the crisp acidity perfectly.

We have purchased coffee from Allan Oveido and his Micro-mill, Don Joel, since 2015. It's actually one of the first producers we purchased coffee from directly at Rosso. Based in the West Valley of Costa Rica, Allan and his family operate around 20 hectares of coffee production and produce the bulk of it as honey process. He's very talented with his honey coffee, showing great aromatics, fantastic flavour perception and deep, heavy tactile sensations.

Every year that we've visited (2019 being the most recent), Allan has added new innovations and technologies to the Micro-mill, which is so positive for us to see. It's really rewarding to see re-investment in quality, efficiency and standard of life, upon our re-visits to origin. If our producing partners are improving, that in theory should mean that we continue to improve!

A honey processed coffee is pulped, meaning the cherry is spliced open and the mucilage inside is exposed. Rather than cleaning it all off the seeds using water to rinse, the coffee is brought to dry covered in this mucilage. This will lead to increased sweetness with jammy or honey-like body. For this red honey process, the majority of mucilage is left on with the coffee seeds to dry. No intentional fermentation stage occurs.

Once your order is received, it will be processed and shipped in 1-3 days.

We source directly from producers when we can to make sure the most profit gets to the farmer. Our sourcing values are shown through our icons on each of our coffee labels and on the back of our coffee bags.

Our 340g and 2lb coffee bags are made entirely of from plant materials and breakdown in a relatively short period of time.

Can I put my used bag in the city compost?
Putting these bags in the city of Calgary's compost is not recommended, due to the current processing facility. However, you can compost the outer lining in a healthy home compost (see further down the page for for info).

Alternative
These bags will break down 90% faster in the landfill than the majority of coffee bags on the market.
