La Nueva Montana, Guatemala - Honey

This is a stunning lot from Antonio Gonzales. Antonio is a producer in the Fraijanes region of Guatemala, near the town of El Palmar. His finca (farm) is 24 hectares in which he has planted yellow & red Catuai under shade trees of avocado & Inga. This honey processed lot was done using his yellow Catuai. 

The process

Ripe cherries are picked and soaked in water to get rid of dust, floaters (or immature beans, hollow beans) and to lower the microbial count and homogenize temperature. They are then dehulled with a manual de-pulper and laid on raised beds to dry for 16 - 18 days. When placed on the raised beds, the coffee is first set in the shade where there is a lot of ventilation and moved every hour during the first 3 days and then every 3 hours until dried. 

This coffee was imported by Primavera Coffee Importers
