Detour's Santa Lucia coffee is the first red honey processed coffee they've released! The red honey is full of berry-like aromatics that lead to a silky texture and layered notes of melon, sweet berry, and orange chocolate, for a really decadent cup.
This lot showcases another level of honey from the West Valley in Costa Rica this year, which utilizes a centrifugal washer that spins off the fruit mucilage of the bean allowing control over the amount of fruit or “honey” left on the seed during the fermentation period.
This single origin coffee comes from a wonderful producer, Ricardo Perez’s farm in Santa Lucia and micro mill, Helsar de Zarcero.
