Del Valle Coffee Whole Bean - Barona Blend
Quality is found at origin. Our specialty coffee comes from a small family owned farm located in Ulloa, Valle del Cauca in Colombia and it is freshly roasted in New Orleans.
Process Method: Honey/Sun Dried
The Cup: "Sweet and savory with praline, toffee, and cocoa flavors."
The “honey” process is the result of leaving the bean's sticky mucilage covering intact after the coffee cherry has been de-pulped (when the outer skin gets stripped off the bean). This process does not involve washing the coffee immediately; therefore, it has the environmental benefit of using less water. By leaving the “honey” coat on the bean, it gives the coffee a sweeter taste with subtle notes of chocolate and brown sugar.
