Costa Rica - Las Lajas [Black Honey] - 200g
A juicy and fruity coffee, lovers of natural coffee will be delighted.
“Necessity is the mother of invention”. For the Chacón family, necessity was certainly the guiding force, in 2006, when Oscar and Francisca Chacón decided to build Las Lajas, the first specialty coffee cooperative in Costa Rica. Today, Las Lajas is an example for all the cooperatives making specialty coffee in Costa Rica.
Before this project, the Chacón family depended on multinationals to process their coffee and couldn't make ends meet.
For 10 years, the Chacón family has focused its efforts on reducing their environmental impact and offering exceptional coffees. The family farm is also certified organic and Las Lajas is recognized for its mastery of the natural and honey method. She has also participated in several Cup of Excellence. For this particular coffee, they used brix measurements to ensure that they only kept the coffee cherries with a high sugar level.
