This is a Honey processed microlot from Finca Las Torres, which is located in the Rivas district of the Chirripo region of Costa Rica. This lot was harvested by the Urena family, who have been harvesting since 2005. Varieties harvested included Red and Yellow Catuai, Caturra, and some Villasarchi. Coffees are dried on patio and raised beds. Black honey processing is generally the most labor intensive of the various honey processes as it is the most sheltered from light during drying, retains more mucilage, and takes longer to dry.
