Atitlan is a honey processed coffee. Put in simple terms, the honey process refers to a semi-washed process, commonly found now in Central America. There are quite a few methods that a producer could use to achieve the trademark body and acidity of a honey washed coffee. At this particular mill the coffee was mechanically depulped and sundried on raised screen beds.
Despite the name, absolutely no honey is used in a honey processed coffee. This coffee processing method is named after the sticky mucilage of the coffee fruit, which in Spanish is called the miel (honey) of the fruit.
