Alternate Route Coffee Co. — El Salvador Caturra Black Honey (454g)
A single origin, single region, single estate, single variety coffee produced using the black honey process, in which part of the cherry remains on the bean. The 'honey' refers to the mucilage.

The farms of Julio Valdivieso celebrate a coffee history that transcends more than four generations, back to the founding fathers of the El Salvadorian Republic. Julio’s coffee blends this rich history of coffee and politics with innovative agricultural and processing techniques.
