Lake Atitlan Coffee Honey From Coffee Flowers

I have often heard selecting honey is like selecting wine, and I have to agree.  Just like wine, honey comes in many different flavor ranges, colors, and even aromas which are determined by the different plant sources, in the case of honey that would be the nectar source of flowers visited by the honey bee.

While much of the honey that you buy in American supermarkets is produced from unknown flower sources, there are gourmet shops and specialty supermarkets that sell monofloral honey.  Monofloral honey is made by bees that have had access to only one kind of nectar and once you have tasted honey produced from one flower source you will be amazed at the distinct taste.

There are so many different kinds of honey and it’s remarkable how different they taste.  Honey can be light in color, dark in color, or anywhere in between.  The lighter-colored honey has a mild taste to it while darker honey is bolder and intensely flavored.  The darker honey also contains more nutrients, including vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.

Clover honey is what most people think of as being typical honey flavor and color. Orange Blossom is often a combination of oranges and or grapefruit.  Alfalfa honey is very light amber in color with a fine flavor.  Coffee honey is one of my favorites.  It is dark in color, with a rich flavor and a slight coffee aftertaste.

Recently while shopping at Chalo’s and Sandra’s, two local grocery stores in Panajachel Lake Atitlan, I bought some dark honey which I believe was coffee, honey.  Rich and distinct in flavor it was some of the best honey that I have tasted.  It was absolutely delicious and tasted wonderful drizzled over my morning yogurt and fruit, as a topping for my oatmeal, and as an ingredient in my banana muffins.
