Cual Bicicleta Honey - Reserve Line
Oscar Omar Alonzo has grown coffee for over 20 years. His farm, Finca “Cual Bicicleta” was named to reflect his life philosophy: riding a bike requires balance and forward momentum, and all parts of the bicycle must work in harmony to keep moving. After switching to organic production in 2003, Oscar initially saw a massive decrease in cherry production. However, with persistence and ingenuity, he grew to surpass his previous conventionally produced output. A unique practice on Oscar's farm is the use of coconut shells that capture and provide moisture to coffee trees during drought seasons. They are buried in the ground, deposited on the surface and mixed with organic fertilizers that are produced and applied on the farm.
Cual Bicicleta is a honey process coffee, which means it is sundried with part of the coffee mucilage still on the bean. This sustainable practice uses less water than washed processing and results in a sweeter tasting coffee than a traditional natural process.
Sweet with caramel & warm spices
Roasted gently to first crack to intensify the caramel notes, then dropped quickly to maintain crisp acidity, which balances out the sweetness
