El Fabio is categorized as a honey-processed bean, but it actually has more of a natural process outcome than other honey-processed coffees. Its green beans emit a delightful fermented aroma that reminds you of wine. Costa Rican beans are very special – they go through a unique honey process that preserves a good amount of the pulp, resulting in a beautiful deep hue that sets them apart from other beans roasted at the same level. To bring out their full flavour, it’s essential to roast them gently, so they don’t end up looking burnt or smoky. El Fabio is a particularly dense and thick coffee, so it needs to be roasted at a moderate temperature of 200C with a lowered air level to ensure that it absorbs heat effectively. When it comes to El Fabio, you’ll be blown away by its incredible sweetness – it’s truly the standout feature! The coffee has a dense, jam-like body that’s a delight to experience. But that’s not all – El Fabio also has a lovely floral fragrance and a refreshing, deeply satisfying aroma, making it an absolute pleasure to drink. Unlike roasting, brewing El Fabio is quite simple and requires no complicated techniques. There’s no need to worry about getting the timing right – whether you brew for a longer or shorter duration, it won’t significantly affect the final result. The secret to unlocking its delicious flavour and aroma is using hotter water, which will surely bring out the best in this delightful coffee.
