To propose this Specialty Coffee is once again the Coope Tarrazù (Cooperativa de Caficultores de Tarrazù RL), a cooperative with over 50 years of experience and renowned for the processing of excellent coffee. 

Punctual as a clock, during the harvest period, every afternoon the women of Cafe Mujer - Coffee grown entirely by women - bring their cherries harvested during the day to the CoopTarrazù reception station. The cherries are immediately weighed and placed in large tanks and the lighter cherries, the ones that float, are removed. Thus begins the long Honey process for these grains, which after immersion in the tanks, are directed to de-pulping plants and to demucillaginators, which usually eliminate almost completely the mucilage layer, but in this case only for 50%. The drying phase completely in the sun is the crucial phase of the Honey method, because it must not be too fast, the aromas would not be absorbed by the beans, nor too slow otherwise they would create mold. In particular for this Yellow Honey the drying process takes about 8 to 10 days.
