What colors come to your mind when you think of the word, Galaxy? For Andres, the answer to that question is dark blue and bright yellow. "Easy enough, those are the same colors that Andres associates with this honey process and the reasoning behind its stellar name." To achieve these galactic notes of blackberry, cherry, chocolate and lemon for the visual of yellow. Andres picks the ripened cherries and depulps them immediately without using water. He then spreads the cherries onto raised drying beds for 1 to 3 weeks, moving them constantly to avoid the risk of fungus from the humidity in the mucilage. That’s one of the trickiest parts of the honey process, and he’s done it perfectly!
