What is Honey Process?

The process refers to the strategy used to transform a ripe coffee fruit into a dried seed that can then be roasted. The most common strategy is the Washed Process, meaning that after harvesting, the coffee fruits are pulped and then soaked in water, which creates an environment conducive to fermentation that eats away at the mucilage, or nectar type gel, covering the seeds. After this “bath,” the seeds are no longer sticky and are then dried for several days before being bagged up. In a Honey Process, the coffee fruits are harvested, pulped and then immediately laid out to dry. The mucilage stays on the seed throughout the whole drying process, which takes around 20 days, and is the cause of the incredible sweet and, well, honey-like, nectary flavors you find in this coffee.

No honey is actually used in the production of Chica Bean’s Honey Process, although with its natural sweetness, it wouldn’t be surprising if there was!

COFFEE SUGGESTIONS

The subtle and intriguing flavors are the best part of this specialty coffee. It is a clean cup with a silky body that’s on the lighter side. This coffee is phenomenal brewed in most methods. Pour Over and Drip devices highlight its characteristics better than heavier methods like Moka Pots. We recommend always trying the first 2 sips of your cup of coffee without any additives to experience its natural goodness. After, if it’s your preference, a bit of sweetener doesn’t harm this coffee. Because of its delicate nature, we do not recommend adding milk.

    Well-balanced roast! I especially love the communications about my order, so I knew exactly when my coffee would be delivered (which was pretty quick- just 6 days after order!)

    I really full flavored cup of coffee from an excellent organization! I like a medium style roast and this blend did not disappoint. It has bright almost citrusy notes and smoothness that made it highly drinkable.

    ChicaBean is consistent with freshness , and a very fast turnaround time for quality beans at a decent price. You won’t be disappointed. And they have a variety for all tastes. I always smile when I open my air tight container and smell the beans first thing in the morning. Makes for a great day.
