A fan fav, we're thrilled to be bringing back La Providencia into everyone's lives – ours included. This coffee has been processed using the Black Honey method, where immediately after being dry pulped it is put to dry in parijuelas (raised beds) and continually turned to ensure even drying and prevent over-fermentation. After several days of pre-drying on the parijuelas, the coffee is then finished on clay patios. The drying time is about 22 days, during which time it is raked regularly to ensure even drying and, thus, a consistent cup. ‘Honey’ processing is a method of low-water processing that is increasingly common across Central America.

Our roasting team tasted incredible notes of tangerine, plum, and almond butter. We can't wait for you to try it and share it with your loved ones.
