We first purchased Minor's coffee back in 2012. After receiving a sample of his honey process, we were intrigued by his drive for innovation and enthusiasm to try something different. Honey and natural processes were something that was extremely rare (if found at all) in Central America at the time. The main reason being the unpredictable rains that come during harvest and the potential to ruin an entire crop if the coffee is left unattended at any point. The amount of risk and how labor intensive these alternative processes were, could only sometimes reap big rewards. We were thrilled to be one of the first roasters in the states to get this offering, and we featured his honey process as our first private reserve coffee a few years ago. This year we have five offerings from Minor: an african washed, three different honey processes a red, yellow, and black, and a natural process. Most of his coffee will be offered through our Coffee Collective, with his natural process only available through our subscription. This is the fourth offering from Minor for 2017/2018 season. The rest of his coffees will be released over the next few months.

 

Please note: This coffee will not be available until March 1st.

Tasting Notes: round sweetness with a syrupy body.
