Edgardo Gutierrez is a well established producer having won 1st place in the El Salvador Cup of Excellence in 2013. This Honey process coffee is incredibly sweet because the fruit pulp is left on the bean and slowly dried over 25 days in the naturally low temperatures of this area. Slow drying allows time for the coffee beans to absorb more sugar, and in this case, a heavy date like sweetness is developed.
Coffee beans are judged on a 100-point scoring system that assesses body, balance, uniformity, sweetness, clarity and acidity. Coffee scoring 80+ points is considered specialty coffee.
