Tasting Notes: Dark Chocolate | Chewy Candy | Raspberry
Uncommon and delicious, this coffee has a bright raspberry acidity, a chewy, candy-like mouthfeel, and a hint of dark chocolate bitterness sneaking into the aftertaste. These qualities work together perfectly making the Ramirez Estate Red Honey well-rounded and complex. If you’re hoping to try something a little different, we can’t recommend it enough.
The producer of this coffee, Eddy Ramirez, does some unique things with his coffee to ensure sustainability. First, fermented coffee cherries are use to create a gas that partially powers his facility. His team also conserves water by using it for two purposes: washing the coffee then watering the crops. In order to create a biodiverse farm, shade trees are also planted to create nitrates for the soil.
Process: Red Honey
What is the Red Honey Process?
In the Red Honey Process, coffee cherries are left to ferment for 18 ours before de-pulping, then they are moved to the patio to dry. After an 8-week rest period in parchment, the coffee is ready for shipping. This process increases the longevity of the coffee and conserves its acidity and sweetness.
