Honduras Organic 18 Rabbit Natural

SKU HON18ORGNAT

Starting at $8.50 / lb
As low as $6.75 / lb

Our 18 Rabbit Naturally processed! Señora Flhor refers to this as her "crunchberry" coffee due to it's sweetness from the Natural processing. The natural process, also known as the dry process, is a back-to-basics approach that stems from Ethiopia. The fruit is left on the bean and there’s little disruption to the coffee while it dries. Instead of being separated from the skin and pulp like a washed coffee, natural processed coffees are laid out in the sun so that the cherry can dry intact after harvesting. The 18 Rabbit farms are owned by Señora Flhor, her mother, and 11 other members of her immediate and extended family.

  • Country: Honduras Marcala Region
  • Altitude: 1400m asl
  • Varieties: Red Catuai and Yellow Catuai
  • Process: Natural

The beans are grown on a female owned micro-lot in the Marcala region and naturally processed. Roasts well at medium to dark. Try a medium roast for a brighter/crisper cup with a hint of chocolate. At the 2nd crack it has honey like sweetness, with a silky body and still just a hint of chocolate.

Medium roast cupping notes: Chocolate aromas that carry over into the cup, and pair well with a clean malic like acid that brings a fruit forward note of green apple. Extreme sweetness/balance.

Try before you stock up with a 1/2 pound sample!

I roast with a heat gun and colander over a large stainless steel bowl. I took these beans just to the start of the second crack and let them rest for 3 days. At first the flavor was not really there and it seemed watery but then when day 6 hit the coffee became way more oily, and fuller in flavor and body and something I became very proud of. The coffee is so smooth and has a great mouth feel, there is a wonderful chocolate note at the end that isn't overly sweet but intriguing enough to bring you back for another sip. I am kicking myself for drinking so much of it before the 6th day as I am all out now and am finding myself missing this coffee! I will be adding these beans to my next order for certain! Oh yeah the customer service at Coffee Bean Corral has been AWESOME!!!

I tried to like all three of the Honduras coffees (Organic 18 Rabbit Natural, Organic 18 Rabbit Black Honey Process, and Organic 18 Rabbit Washed). This was only slightly better than the other others. It was just OK. I do lean toward Pacific coffees and some of the Brazils. Perhaps I was expecting too much - there wasn't anything redeeming there for me. I will not buy any of the three again.

Splendid cup of coffee. We roasted a light, medium and dark roast with it. The fruity and flowery came out with the lighter roast with a hint of chocolate. Though good it was my wife’s least (my second) favorite roast. The dark roast seemed to only have a chocolate note. My wife seconds favorite (my least) roast. We both agreed that the medium roast was by far the best cup of coffee. It had a great chocolate note with the other notes as more subtle.

I was a bit skeptical of this offering as I am much inclined toward African and Pacific Island coffees. I took a shot and purchased 10 lbs. of this and I am very happy that I did. This coffee provides some the best attributes of a fruity Ethiopian natural with great balance and a lovely chocolatey finish. I roasted it to just past the end of the first crack - the leading edge of a full city roast. Very nice cup.

First roasted to light or just after 1st crack. Nice aroma. The brew was very fruity, bright and slight chocolate. Reminded me of chocolate covered blueberries. Subsequent roasts were medium (to 2nd crack) and lessened the strong fruit but brought forth the chocolate sweetness. Good balance of fruit, sweetness and chocolate in the medium roast. Drawing out the 1st crack produces more fruit.
