About this coffee:

Our geisha plantation thus be found at the very top of Los Lajones Estate, as high as 2,000 masl (6,500 ft). In the year 2008, we planted around new trees in the shade of bamboo trees. We believe that bamboo creates a unique conditions for the growth of coffee tree. 

History
Los Lajones Organic Estate is located on the slopes of Volcan Baru in the elevation of 1750 – 2400 masl. The total size of the farm is 160 ha, with about 40 ha dedicated to farming. Currently, 35 ha are cultivated with coffee trees, 21 ha are used for production and 14 ha is devoted to young trees between 2-3 years old (mainly Geisha and Pacamara variety). The other varieties used on Los Lajones are Caturra and Catuai.

Before the farm was purchased by Graciano Cruz R. and his son in 1992, it was owned for many years by Alberto Rubio and used mainly for cattle pasture. In the first years after purchase, the lower parts of the property were slowly planted with coffee trees. Recently, the focus shifted to the upper parts, with Geisha variety being planted as high as 2100 masl.

Climate
The unique geological characteristics of the property, which is located in-between two lava flows, created a completely different and specific microclimate.

The rainy period is clearly defined, starting in May and lasting up to December. From January until April, the farm is constantly hit by wind currents coming from the Pacific Ocean, which collide with Bajareque (misty rain) arriving each afternoon from the Caribbean. This unique microclimate makes Los Lajones a perfectly dry spot for 5 months during the crop. The average annual rainfall is around 3500 mm of water, distributed into mild showers that take place predominantly from April until August. The rainiest months are usually September and October, averaging 1000 mm per month.

This coffee exhibits a super sweet and complex cup profile, exceptionally clean coffee with with notes of jasmine and chocolate finish. You'll be delighted on the first sip!
