Honey Bear Reserve, an ode to the artisanal ‘honey’ movement, was the first of its kind born in Nicaragua. Exhibiting this artisanal fruit-curing, Honey Bear is truly a reserve coffee.
‘Honeyed’ refers to the natural coffee drying process. To be clear, there is no honey added. Just below the skin, similar to the best wine grapes, lies a thick layer of fruit surrounding two coffee plant seeds aka ‘beans’. Instead spring water fermentation, the fruit-covered seeds are put in the sun for 7 days of drying. The coffee fruit melts in the sun like honey, curing the raw seeds and infusing a light natural sweetness. When roasted, the sweetness is subtle and the body is big. We embrace its unique character by hand-stamping each bag in Nicaragua.

Twin Engine's Extra commitment to Fair Trade:
Most fair trade coffees pay farmers fairly, but the beans are shipped to the U.S. or Canada for roasting and packaging
Twin Engine beans are grown, roasted (fresh) after picking, and packaged in Nicaragua.
That means more fair trade jobs for people who really need them!
Twin Engine's Superior Quality:
Most coffee companies mix lower grade beans in with higher quality beans. (This is allowed by FDA standards – lower grade beans may have mold or insect exposure).
Twin Engine beans are 100% “Specialty Grade” beans. And they’re 100% organic, and single-source.
