Costa Rica

This lot of Costa Rica Jaguar is honey processed, meaning the mucilage of the coffee cherry, or coffee honey, that coats the parchment is left on during the drying stage. The coffee is picked, depulped and moved to patios where it stays at least one week.

The honey process started in Costa Rica and has since spread to other countries in Central America. This process yields a sweeter tasting coffee reminiscent of natural processed coffees.

A purchase of this coffee provides a small contribution to the preservation of jaguars in Costa Rica.
