Black Honey processed 18 Rabbit! The name “Honey Process” actually comes from how sticky the beans get during processing. This type of processing coffee beans 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 coffee production 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.

RECEIVED THESE BEANS WITH GREAT EXPECTATION...WHERE SOMEONE GETS SWEET IS BEYOND ME.I DID NOTICE THE BEANS HAVE A TENDENCY TO ROAST ALMOST BLACK IN COLOR EVEN THOUGH I WAS VERY CAREFUL TO CONTROLL THE TEMPERATURE AND KEEPING THEM MOVING. THE TASTE FOR ME IS VERY ROBUST,STRONG BUT NOT NOTICING ANY SWEETNESS EXCEPT FOR THE SUGAR I ADD & SOME WHIPPING CREAM. ITS A GREAT CUP OF COFFEE THE BEANS SEEM FRESH ALTHOUGH WITH FREIGHT THEY COST $10.00 PER LB. I WISH I HAD A PLACE TO START A SMALL COFFE SHOP YOUR GLOBAL VARIETY OF BEANS WOULD CRUSH STARBUCKS!

Really yummy! I just started roasting coffee, which I do in my cast iron pan. This was my first batch of roasting, and I was not disappointed. So glad I found this website, delicious coffee has never been more affordable. :)

Absolutely loved this one. Smooth and rounded cup. Actually tastes like it smells in a medium roast. Have already ordered another 3lbs

After many attempts with a BarWell Roaster, using 160 °C . I finally achieved a light roast without burning the beans. I used multiple roast sessions as to not over roast. The roaster's temperature gauge I decided was inaccurate. I achieved nirvana with a wonderful sweet chocolate nutty aroma & smooth clean taste with zero bitterness from over roasting. Recommending slow & low roasting <= 160°C. One must be very attentive & check the roasting frequently, it will be worth the effort.

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.
