Honduras – Honey Decaf
Flavor Notes: caramel, nutty, citrus
During the pandemic, the De La Finca team decided to look for areas to innovate. Here are their thoughts on this coffee, directly from their website:
Enter → our honey decaf.
Typically, only lower scoring, washed process coffees are what are sent to be decaffeinated—because why would anyone want to decaffeinate a good coffee, right?
With a recent rise in popularity of decaf coffees, we decided to profile a particular honey process (higher quality processing method) coffee from a collective of farmers in the Marcala region then we sent it to Descamex in Vera Cruz, Mexico where it was organically decaffeinated using pure water from Pico de Orizaba (without use of chemicals).
At first, Descamex thought it was a defect coffee. They said it had turned out badly (they were used to tasting lower quality, decaffeinated coffees). We were surprised… so Nelson flew down to Vera Cruz himself to try the outcome of our experiment… when he arrived, low and behold, the coffee was actually REALLY good. It was so good, in fact, that it almost didn’t taste like decaf!
We started bringing in this coffee in 2020 and it’s been sold out 2 years in a row now. There are very limited quantities available because it’s in such a popular coffee across the country.
While we were always confident it was an excellent decaf, we just weren’t sure how it would hold up in competition until it took 1st Place in the Golden Bean North America for the Decaf Category.
