How the process affects the flavor of the coffee: 

The honey process leaves on part of the mucilage during the drying process this creates a more syrupy, jam, and actually honey like flavor profile. Honey process coffees are known to be the middle ground between naturals and washed. Naturals are more stone fruit, syrupy with light acidity and a lasting flavor in your pallet. Washed coffees tend to be more floral, acidic and lighter tasting with a quick clean flavor within your pallet. Honey process depending on which one combines the two.
