Getting product details...

Tasting notes: Rich dried fruit and berry flavours. Lots of character, a real fruit burst!

Dona Francisca and Don Oscar Chacon of Las Lajas micromill are third-generation coffee producers in their family. They inherited their farms from their grandparents, and are known for being among the first to process high-quality Honeys and Naturals in Central America, and for participating in the Cup of Excellence auction in 2009.

Las Lajas is an organic micromill located in Sabanilla de Alajuela in the Central Valley region of Costa Rica. Las Lajas processes coffee from their family farms. Water use is minimal as they focus on 'honey' processing methods. This involves leaving 100% of the coffee mucilage (fruit) on the cherry during the drying process. The 'Alma Negra' version is turned just a few times per day. The resulting cup is 'funky' with rich dried fruit and berry notes!
