Clover honey and limes with zingy acidity and medium body

We first tasted coffee from Doña Carmen's farm Montes de Cristo a few years ago and were impressed with the balance between its acidity and sweetness. We have a small shipment of this coffee which was prepared using the honey process method (see Raja Batak). The Montes de Cristo farm has almost three hectares of coffee and only produces a small number of bags a year. We feel fortunate to have coffee this year as it continues to be difficult times for the farm. Roya (Coffee Rust Disease) hit Central America severely over the last couple of years and Doña Carmen has had to take some drastic steps to ensure a crop for this year and the next few years. Whilst getting the farm back to full productivity Doña Carmen has also been incredibly busy sewing tutus for thirty young ballerinas from the local ballet school who will be dancing in a Nutcracker production this Christmas.
