Honey process, what is? and whats the main difference between Washed?
Usually, washed process is when coffee cherries are pulped, fermented and washed after it’s picked. Honey processing is very different, since the coffee its pulped and then dried before being washed. With this technique, coffee is dried without removing the mucilage and as a result, an intense fermentation occurs, leading to a complex cup profile with intense red fruit, citric and honey notes and aromas at the same time.
Honey processed coffees are not an easy thing, since the process itself its very susceptible to cup defects if the drying process is not performed in the ideal weather conditions. Fortunately, Buesaco Nariño has incredible weather conditions that creates the "perfect storm" for this type of post harvest or beneficio process. This type of process requires a slow and even drying journey, and that is why Coffee parchments are dried in raised beds, covered in greenhouse. The process last around 30 - 45 days, depending on the weather conditions, in order to reach the ideal humidity.
