Bees are essential to coffee producers by helping buds set and enabling coffee trees to blossom. Each blossom represents a vital coffee cherry for coffee farmers like Jorge Mendez in Huehuetenango, Guatemala.

Beehives also help create a second income stream for coffee farmers. Coffee Blossom Honey—a partner of Onyx Coffee Imports, based in Huehuetenango—sources and exports honey from coffee farmers in the region.

We're excited to offer honey from El Apiario this year: a robust profile with round brown sugary sweetness, peach and citrus, and slight vanilla undertones.

Notes from Coffee Blossom Honey

"We’ve known Jorge Mendez for over a decade. His farm being quite near our own, we visit his family at Finca El Apiario multiple times per year. On one such visit six years ago, our group marveled over home-baked bread with honey from Jorge’s farm. An idea buzzed among us, and then stuck: to support alternative revenue streams for coffee producers like Jorge, by connecting roasters with the delicious honey already produced on farms. El Apiario was the first honey we shared with the world.

"For many years, we’ve partnered with Jorge Mendez for his coffees: El Panal, Gorioncillo, and Las Huellas. Jorge’s honey has a robust profile, with a round brown sugary sweetness, peach and citrus, and slight vanilla undertones."

Sourced by Coffee Blossom Honey in partnership with Onyx Coffee Imports.

Three factors make honey more likely to crystallize:
• Storing below 50ºF (10ºC)
• The ratio of glucose and fructose in the honey
• Pollen content

If your Coffee Blossom Honey crystallizes, just put the jar in a vessel of warm water and allow it to slowly liquify.

NOTE: Raw honey is not suitable for infants.
