Classic: La Angostura Honey
Origin: Tarrazu, Costa Rica
Producers: The Jimenez Family
One of the things we love about Costa Rican coffees is how serious the producers are about lot separation and processing. The same farm can produce vastly different flavors of coffee due to the meticulous care farmers take in properly harvesting, milling, and drying their crops. The Jimenez family is a perfect example of this work ethic: Mario and his daughters Arleen and Maria grow mostly Catuai and Caturra beans on their family farm, but love to experiment with different farming practices and processing methods to create a bunch of unique flavors. This honey lot from their Angostura farm was hand-picked and diligently tended over 15 days of drying on African beds to ensure supreme quality and clarity of taste.
Angostura Honey has a real presence thanks to its strong flavor notes and heavy body. A crisp, refreshing apple note rings throughout the entire cup, metered by a smooth, cream-like consistency. While many honey coffees tend towards the bright and acidic end of the flavor spectrum, Angostura Honey is a bold, weighty brew perfect for an early morning pick-me-up. We'd love to hear how you like it, drop us a comment and rate your coffees on the website!
