Description

raw green bean Green coffee is raw Roast prior to consumption

“Honey Process” indicates how sticky the coffee beans can get during processing, and it yields a sweet, fruity taste depending on how long it’s developed based on the amount of mucilage and drying times. It has a complex mouthfeel halfway between a washed coffee and a naturally-processed coffee. Honey processing is divided into subdivisions: yellow, red, golden, black, and white honey.

Female-owned farmland, 18 Rabbit paved the way for organic and biodynamic farming practices––the farmers regenerate the soil used for their agriculture. It’s because of their unique fermentation and dedication to the environment that they placed top 10 for Honduras’ Cup of Excellence.

The 18 Rabbit Yellow Honey Process is sometimes referred to as semi-washed––it’s fermented for less than eight hours––when de-pulped, the beans are strained and put out to dry.

Cupping Notes: Mild floral notes that carry over into the flavor, very sweet, creamy body with honeysuckle flavors.

I have been on a mission to find the "best" coffee bean to make my regular roast. I have tried a number of different beans and so far this is my favorite. Even if I end up finding one later that I like more I will keep getting this one as a regular one. I love the fact that it is organic. I am a newbie so don't know all the technical jargon to describe the flavors, etc., but it has a natural sweet flavor with a fruitiness. It was best after off-gassing for 5+ days before grinding and roasting.

Amazing bean. So rich, balanced, with great complexity and depth! Sweet, creamy and floral. A new favorite of mine. I prefer this bean roasted to the end of first crack.

This is instantly recognizable as a natural process bean by its berry-like notes. In fact, it reminds me a lot of the Ethiopian Misty Valley Yirgacheffe, but this Honduran bean is more delicate and light bodied. I found it just okay the day after roasting, but after giving it 5 days to off-gas it has transformed into something marvelous.

From the sampler kit of 18 Rabbits coffee, this one was by far my favorite. Especially love the caramel/apple overtones with a smooth finish sort of leaving you anticipating the next sip. I roast with an air popper and found the best roast for my taste was medium just turning dark roast. The lighter roast taste good but did not sit as well on the finish and the darker roast started to loose some of the fruity overtones.

Roasted to beginning of 2nd crack, and the cup is very smooth. There's a hint of acidity, but it's muted and strangely comes off more in the aroma than the taste. I've never really seen green apple as a flavor note before and I was skeptical. But it's definitely there. It blends in with the caramel, as well as a hint of cinnamon to make something reminiscent of apple pie. Which, makes it sound like this is a super sweet coffee. But it's more mild than all that. Usually when I think fruity, I think of something bright and acidic like in Ethiopian, and that's not what this is. It's a more muted sweet; like a pastry more so than a jam. Definitely not as colorful as the red process 18 rabbit was. Overall though, still one of my favorites so far. I'm actually wondering if this bean might do better as a lighter roast. Right now I'm drinking it at a full city, but I wonder if the city or city+ might bring out more of the caramel apple. Either way, worth a try!
