Costa Rica Finca Las Lajas
FeatureCosta Rica’s first natural–processed coffee.
Las Lajas began producing honey coffees in 2008. The farm uses a Penagos demucilaginator to depulp the coffee, and since the coffees are all natural or honey process, very little water is used at the mill. For their Honeys, 100% of the mucilage is left on the coffee, and the coffee is dried in different ways. The Black honey process means they only turn the coffee once giving the cup bright flavours through–out.
Aroma: Clove and nutmeg aroma.
Body: Complex acidity, with green grape, tangerine and grapefruit flavours throughout.
