Product Description

Shangrila is located where coffee made its original landfall in El Salvador. The Ilamatepec region, protected by Unesco since 2007 for its relevance as a biosphere reserve, is where coffee was originally farmed in El Salvador making the country the 4th largest producer in the world in the 1970s. The volumes are smaller now, but producers like Juan Carlos are providing garden-like-care to their farms to move to even higher flavor realms. Shangrila is planted mostly with bourbons and in recent years, Juan Carlos has diversified by planting ancient Ethiopian varietals.

This honey processed coffee was mechanically de-pulped after harvest and part of the fruit mucilage was left on the beans. The beans are dried on raised drying beds for 2-3 weeks.

    I was never much of a coffee drinker, but I really got hooked and could see why so many people appreciate a good cup of coffee after being introduced to this amazing Bourbon honey. You don’t have to add anything else to it. Just make yourself a cup and get ready to be amazed.

    Exquisite. I’m just trying to describe in a single word, one of the best coffee I ever tasted. Early mornings, at lunch time and after long days a aromatic/warm cup of this Bourbon Honey coffee is exactly what my body needs. No doubt this coffee exceeds any expectations. Quality, Flavor, Happiness.

    After tasting the Bourbon Honey I understood the difference a premium, quality coffee truly makes. I’ve since turned 3 other coffee drinkers onto this and they all had the same immediate reaction; pure delight! I highly recommend the Bourbon Honey to new and seasoned coffee drinkers alike since it seems to be a crowd favorite time and time again.

    This coffee is delicious from start to finish. You can taste the different notes through out and the flavor varies with the concentration… I love it…Perfection!

  5. Jennifer

    Simply put – this is a really great coffee. I make it as a pour over and it’s excellent every single time. These were my first beans from Firebat and I can’t wait to try the others.

    Shangrila and Mileydi are my two favourite coffee beans. Each one has its own wonderful characteristic! I will continue drinking these coffees as they became my all time favourites.
