If you love coffee and want to try a truly extraordinary roast, this one is for you. Honey Bear Reserve, an ode to the artisanal ‘honey’ movement, was the first of its kind born in Nicaragua. Exhibiting this artisanal fruit-curing, Honey Bear is truly a reserve coffee. ‘Honeyed’ refers to the natural coffee drying process. To be clear, there is no honey added.
Just below the skin, similar to the best wine grapes, lies a thick layer of fruit surrounding two coffee plant seeds aka ‘beans’. Instead of spring water fermentation, the fruit-covered seeds are put in the sun for 7 days of drying. The coffee fruit melts in the sun like honey, curing the raw seeds and infusing a light natural sweetness. When roasted, the sweetness is subtle and the body is big.
