Honduras Marcala Honey Mountain Water Decaf Transparency Report

Honduras Marcala Honey Mountain Water Decaf


DESCRIPTION: A collective of small producers in the Marcala region of Honduras. Yellow and red catuai varieties are pulped and dried in their mucilage as a honey. The coffee is then shipped to Descamex in Mexico where the caffeine is removed with pure water from Pico de Orizaba using a water saturation process that removes caffeine without the use of chemicals.
