About Jaguar Honey
The honey process started in Costa Rica and has since spread to other countries in Central America. In this process some or all of the mucilage of the coffee cherry – or coffee honey – that coats the parchment is left on during the drying stage, giving the coffee a sweetness that resembles a natural honey.
This Tarrazú coffee was hand-picked, depulped and moved to patios – African beds – where it was dried for a week until it reached the desired humidity.
Our Costa Rica Jaguar Tarrazú Honey is one of our coffees with a purpose. The coffee is the same as San Diego Honey, but we are asking a bit more – and Genuine Origin will match it – for the coffee to finance FUNDAZOO’s program to protect Costa Rica’s diminishing jaguar population.
