About this coffee:

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 Honey 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. Organic coffee in Costa Rica is almost nonexistent, and with this calibre of the cup makes it one of a kind; they believe in the preservation of the environment hence their organic practices.

Las Lajas processes coffee from their family farms’; these lots are fully traceable and separated by day. Water use is minimal since the coffee is not washed. During the harvest, Francisca will measure the Brix content in the coffee cherry to determine the optimal time to pick the coffee. 21–22% Brix content has been the maximum they’ve seen.  

This Black Honey process coffee was dried with 100% mucilage left on, coffee turned only once per day. As a result, you'll get the intense maple syrup sweetness & apple juiciness in the cup. A very well processed clean coffee.
