Honey Bear Reserve, an ode to the artisanal ‘honey’ movement, was the first of its kind born in Nicaragua. Exhibiting this artisanal fruit-curing, Honey Bear is truly a reserve coffee.
‘Honeyed’ refers to the natural coffee drying process. To be clear, there is no honey added. Just below the skin, similar to the best wine grapes, lies a thick layer of fruit surrounding two coffee plant seeds aka ‘beans’. Instead spring water fermentation, the fruit-covered seeds are put in the sun for 7 days of drying. The coffee fruit melts in the sun like honey, curing the raw seeds and infusing a light natural sweetness. When roasted, the sweetness is subtle and the body is big. We embrace its unique character by hand-stamping each bag in Nicaragua.
