Honduras Organic 18 Rabbit Black Honey Process


Starting at $8.75 / lb
As low as $7.50 / lb

Black Honey processed 18 Rabbit! The name “Honey Process” actually comes from how sticky the beans get during processing. This type of processing coffee is halfway between a washed coffee and a natural process coffee: it’s fruity, but not in as exaggerated a way as some naturals. It often has a more rounded acidity than washed coffees, with intense sweetness and complex mouthfeel. Typically, the more mucilage left on the bean, the sweeter the taste. Subcategories have developed based on the amount of mucilage that is left as well as their drying times: yellow, red, golden, black, and white honey.

The 18 Rabbit farms are owned by Senora Flhor, her mother, and 11 other members of her immediate and extended family. One of the 18 Rabbit farms won the Honduras Cup of Excellence in 2014, and her coffee auctioned for over $35/ lb. All 13 farms are managed by a different family member and separated into microlots, and Café Kreyol cups each of these with the family in order to help them improve scores, and hand select the best ones to bring home. Flhor and her family are paid over 300% higher wages than Fair Trade, as a reward for their exceptional organic practices and high score of 87 points on the selected lot.

Tasting Notes: Maple aroma, green apple acidity, strong undertones of sugarcane and a honey finish.

Excellent flavor overall, I purchased for the high complexity and was not disappointed.

Very happy with these beans. They were fruity and ripe with a finishing sweetness and easy drinkability. Due to natural process, I had a little difficulty roasting them, but that's on me! Would buy again.

It's too bad I only ordered a 1/2 lb of these beans. They are pretty amazing. I've just roasted up my second (and last 😣) available batch, and I am hoping the order I'm placing tonight will get to me in time to share with my friends before Christmas. I love when a new coffee becomes a new favorite.
