The Red Honey description is from the laborious process where the beans are husked and dried with the natural sugars and mucilage (plant fluid). The level of mucilage is a the key factor in the sweetness and depth of body of the coffee. The more mucilage or ‘honey’ that is left on the bean, the greater the sweetness and depth. The coffee beans need to be continuously turned over to avoid excessive fermentation. The results are a fabulous sweet coffee like this Red Honey from El Salvador.
