Referring to the way the seeds were dried in the ancient Mayan civilization, the same wisdom is applied to specialty coffees, producing a rich aroma and multi-layered flavor profile unlike typical washed coffees.

Honey Process

Honey processing is a more difficult technique in coffee production. Since the slimy pulp layer is directly dried, it takes a lot of manpower to fully supervise the process to prevent excessive fermentation or mold.
