finca vista hermosa
It took some time to find a good source for this honey. While a fair amount of coffee blossom honey is made in various parts of Asia, South America and Africa, it can be hard to line up reliable sources for high quality honey.
We now have a reliable source from a coffee farm named Finca Vista Hermosa, located in the highlands of northwestern Guatemala.
This honey comes from the nectar of arabica coffee plants. Both the nectar and the honey contain small amounts of caffeine. At least one study found that this caffeine boosts memory in bees, helping them to return to the same plants again and again until all of the nectar is collected.
color and flavor
The color of this honey is a bit darker, and ranges from light amber to amber.
The taste is medium sweet, with a very pleasant apricot-caramel flavor that builds with each sample you try. Some customers tell us that there is a faintly spicy aftertaste.
If you use honey for your coffee, then this is a natural choice. The flavors of this honey will enhance and compliment the flavors of your coffee.
Drizzle a some of this honey on grilled peaches - it's a great combination.
With its bolder flavor, this honey also stands up well in baking. Use it to make honey and peanut butter cookies, for example.
Very tasty honey....tender sweet with a slightly tart aftertaste. I will purchase this item again.
Really interesting flavor, I loved it!
Coffee shop in Leavenworth, WA recommended the Coffee Blossom Honey when I asked for something different from my usual (read boring) latte. Fell in love and now do 50% usual, 50% Coffee Blossom. Smiley Honey has been a good, reliable supplier and I’d recommend them to anyone who asks.
superb quality try it in the morning coffee. Can't be beat!!!
I'm not a fan of coffee, but this doesn't taste like coffee.
It has a smokey caramel taste that I really enjoy.
I'll be buying more of it!
