Due to the amount of work and care involved in producing Peixoto Honey, the coffee has limited availability and we are delighted to be able to share it with you each year! For the honey-process, cherries are carefully picked, then floated to remove any over or under ripe cherries before passing through a depulper to gently remove the skin. The coffees are then slowly sundried, leading to a crisp and delicate flavor profile with the same great sweetness as our other family coffees.

This Recipe offers a lot of clarity and separation of flavor which highlights the things we love in the Peixoto Honey. Notes of sweet orange and milk chocolate in the hot cup give you a glimpse of what is to come. Cooling with flavors of orange, crisp apple, white grape and a sweetness of raw sugar, the flavors come together in a beautiful harmony, all coming together without over taking each other.

This is our classic espresso recipe for the Peixoto Honey. It yields a juicy bodied shot with soft notes of granny smith apple, and white grape. This is held together with the structure of the sweetness, which reminds of raw sugar and milk chocolate, these flavors come into play and allow for the bright acidity of the apple and grape to balance out, reminding of caramelized apple or grape preserves. We love this coffee on espresso because it has the complexities we love without being overwhelming, it is also a very surprising flavor profile for Brazil and it is a gateway to show the kind of quality the country can offer.
