This year, our partners in Thailand were able to get a small crop from the village of Law Wu and use the black honey process. Black honey is similar to our normal honey process except the machinery is adjusted during the pulping process in order to leave more fruit mucilage on the bean. It is an extremely involved process that requires massaging the green beans multiple times a day for two weeks as well as taking detailed readings on moisture content in order to avoid fermentation.
All this extra work was well worth it as our Law Wu Black Honey is our highest scoring coffee. The mucilage left on the coffee bean adds sweetness and acidity, and the attention to detail by our partners helps retain the elegance and nuance of the coffee.
Our Law Wu is roasted quickly in order to retain its acidity and brightness. By spending less time in the earlier part of the roast, we’re able to slowly and gently develop the coffee after the first crack, where a large percentage of the water content has been expelled from the bean as steam. This longer development time allows for the high sugar content to carmelize slowly without burning away. Coupled with vibrant acidity, Law Wu makes for an elegant and thoughtful cup that allows you to experience the careful and exceptional effort made by those that produced and processed this wonderful coffee.
