We are super pleased to be offering a new selection from Finca V&G, our fifth year of roasting coffees from this forward thinking finca. By using sustainable and regenerative farming practices and experimenting with new hybrids, Tomas Gutierrez and Allan Vargas have grown Finca V&G into a well respected supplier of fantastic coffee!
This year we have selected their White Honey offering, notes of ripe cherry, lemon iced tea and a sweet, clean finish are what make this lot stand out for us.
But what is 'white' honey you ask? in very simplistic terms, honey processing lives between natural and washed processes - the 'colour' corresponds to how much mucilage is left on the bean during fermentation - the more mucilage, the darker the colour - so in order - black honey is the most and closest in finish to a natural processed coffee - then red, yellow and white, white being the closest to a washed coffee, yet still retaining some 'funk' of a natural. Now you know.
