  • Honey Process

    Honey coffees are on the rise in El Salvador, and typically the coffees are picked ripe and de-pulped the day they're harvested, then spread on patios or raised beds to dry in their mucilage for 20–25 days.

A first for many.

Our first El Salvador offering.

This bright, sweet Pacamara is a welcome addition to our offering and creates great filter coffee. Packed full of bright sweetness and juicy fruit notes from the Honey process, this microlot is not to be missed while we have it.

The Producers

Isaac Luna owns several small farms, where he grows different varieties, including Pacamara, Pacas, and Bourbon. A visitor from Panama came through Isaac's church, exploring the area to develop new coffee lands and teach new processing methods. From this man, Isaac learned the Honey process: He was the first to process Honey coffee in this area. The coffee is picked ripe and de-pulped, then laid out to dry on raised beds as a Honey for about 20 days, depending on the weather.

Isaac has been growing coffee since the early 2010s, though he has Bourbon trees on his land that are upward of 45 years old.

He sees coffee as an adventure and an opportunity, and as he continues to learn about the process and about cupping, he is anxious to hear feedback and learn how to improve. "Every time, the coffee is different," he says. "You can work harder, and although it's hard, it is very rewarding."
