THE WILD ONE

Our Honeyed Yellow Caturra is the result of a single coffee varietal (yellow caturra) processed in a special way (honeyed). The honey process naturally flavors the coffee with its own sticky-sweet pulp and juices. This creates a striking, unique coffee that simultaneously dazzles and regales. Kenneth Davids of Coffee Review awarded our Honeyed Yellow Caturra a score of 94 and shares his enjoyment:

"Elegant flower-bomb. Exhilarating, refreshing meadow flowers, roasted cacao nib, almond in aroma and cup. Delicate, balanced structure. Soft but lively acidity; smooth, plush mouthfeel. Gently but decisively flavor-saturated finish... A unique and precious profile, breezy and meadowy in its floral character, crisply complete."

A very limited release from our farm in Puna, this micro-lot is a lovechild from the small population of yellow caturra trees scattered throughout our field. The bright yellow coffee cherries are harvested separately from the red and the fruit skin is removed to expose the sticky-sweet pulp surrounding the bean. The coffee is thinly spread on drying racks and gently raked under the sun many times each day to encourage a quick drying time. A few months later, after resting in the sugared coffee shell (parchment), the parchment is removed and the coffee is ready to roast.

Honeyed Yellow Caturra is delicately roasted so you can experience the full spectrum of earthy, syrupy-sweet characteristics this processing method engenders. The profile is a stark departure from the other coffees in our Kazumura line.
