The Black Honey process is a drying process where part of the cherry remains on the bean and is covered while drying. A more full-bodied, sweeter and less acidity coffee results from this The Honey Process is a more environmentally friendly way of processing coffee since no water is used to wash off the mucilage hence the water sources are not contaminated with the coffee wastewater.
Honey coffees are exclusively sun-dried and the drying process takes a longer time than the Fully Washed or Washed coffees since the mucilage needs to be dried first.
Black Honey process occurs when 100% of the coffee bean fruit ( mucilage) remains on the bean, in this process and thus drying time is longer giving this a more complexed flavor
