THE SLOTH IS BACK! (and he’s chillin’)
As predicted, different growing season, different profile. Same awesome!
This is an SHB EP Grade Black Honey processed microlot from Finca El Mango, which is located in the Rivas district of the Chirripo region of Costa Rica. This lot was harvested by Regulo Urena Chacon and the Urena family who have been harvesting since 2005. Growing altitude for this lot ranges from 1350 masl – 1825 masl and varieties harvested include Red and Yellow Catuai, Caturra, and some Villasarchi. Coffees are dried on patio and raised beds.
Black honey processing is generally the most labor intensive of the various honey processes as it is the most sheltered from light during drying, retains more mucilage, and takes longer to dry (around 2 weeks).
