honey, tangerine, dark chocolateEl Salvador Cerro Las Ranas - Honey Process
Cerro Las Ranas means ‘hill of the frogs’ the finca taking its name from a lagoon that is populated by thousands of frogs. The farm is located between the Apenaca and Ateno mountain ranges at an altitude between 1450 and 1780 meters in Santa Ana, El Salvador.
The ripe bourbon cherries are pulped as normal and then sent to dry still covered in the sticky mucilage. It is spread out and raked regularly on clay patios to ensure even drying. This process is called pulped natural or honey process. This imparts a subtle sweetness and fruity note to the coffee.
On grinding the coffee has an aroma of sweet caramel with apricot and flowers.
It has a complex flavour of honey, tangerine and dark chocolate with a full buttery mouthfeel and a short, sweet finish.
It is a full medium roast which makes it an excellent single origin espresso coffee but equally suited to other brewing methods and it holds its own in milkier drinks.
