Honduras - Belarmino Contreras Anaerobic Honey
Nectarine / Red Wine
"Abnormal Offerings for Coffee Lovers."
The Skeleton Key Series is a new set of small batch single origin offerings from Brass Ring Coffee. These are coffees that we find to be special or "abnormal" in some way or another. Some of these coffees may come from special farms, use experimental processing techniques, unique typicas, or just have an extremely special flavor or character. You can always count on a Skeleton Key coffee to transport you to somewhere special when you close your eyes to take the the first sip.
$16.25 for 12 oz.
$20.30 for 1 lb.

This is an honey-processed, anaerobically fermented lot entirely comprised of select Parainema harvests from Belarmino Contreras's farm, "Genesis." After picking, cherries are fermented in sealed barrels for 72 hours, before being partially de-pulped and laid out in a solar dryer. During drying, the coffee is hand-sorted to remove defects.
Belarmino is a second-generation coffee producer; he grew up helping his father, and by 20 he was overseeing some of his farms. At 30, he set out on his own. His brother taught him about the preparation of micro-lots for the specialty market on his property outside the village of Las Flores. He has been continually working to improve processes and quality for nearly a decade.
