The coffee industry in Costa Rica has two things that can be said to be commendable in specialty coffee. One is the Mircromill Revolution, second is the colorful honey processing. Not long ago, it was about distinguishing white, yellow, orange, gold, red black, etc. For each color honey treatment, which factors are pectin residues, drying time, turning frequently etc. Many companies still hold their own opitions, which is an interesting story in develpment of specialty coffee.
The naming of the god Arisme is inspired by Greek mythology. Airs is an abbreviation of Aristaeus from the original text. Aristaeus is the son of Apollo, Sun of God. In Greek mythology, he is famous of beekeeping and honey making. In Greece, people think that honey is not the secretion of flowers, but the flower dew bestowed by flowers. The ancient Greek philospher Aristotle also wrote about beekeeping in his book "Zoology", in which he wrote that honey collected by bees is not the secretion of flowers, but the necter bestowed by flowers. It really couldn't be more apt that we name this Costa Rican Honey as Arisme.
