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 one of 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. Organic coffee in Costa Rica is almost non-existent and with this caliber of 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 coffee is not washed.  During the harvest Francisca will measure the brix contents in the coffee cherry to determine the optimal time to pick their coffee.  21 - 22% brix content has been the maximum they’ve seen. This honey process of leaving 100% of the mucilage on in all “levels” of honey is distinctive to Las Lajas

In the cup: Brandy, dark cherries, and spice.

price: $17.00
