This dark roasted honey process coffee makes for the perfect cozy cup. While no honey is involved in the processing of this coffee, you can expect sweet honey-like notes in this coffee. It reminds us of biting into a perfect piece of toast with lots of sweet cream butter, and has a hint of herby sage notes for a very well-rounded coffee.

This coffee comes to us from the COFINCAF trading company in Chiapas, Mexico, helmed by coffee farmer María Esther Saut Niño. Saut and her husband have worked since 2012 to distribute over 20 million healthy coffee plants throughout their community to help recover from a destructive coffee plant fungus that crippled many local farmers' livelihoods. From their Rainforest Alliance-certified farm Finca La Fortaleza, Saut and her husband have created a hub of education and resources for other coffee producers in Chiapas.
