Las Lajas offers several honey processed coffees, where the musilage is left on the bean to dry. Alma Negra is turned several times a day. Like the Yellow or Red Honey's from this mill, are turned more often. We've yet to be disappointed.

Costa Rica is an accessible coffee destination and Las Lajas is in the mountains outside of the capital, San Jose. But, only in recent years has Costa Rica coffee been cultured and harvested for the specialty coffee market. Our importer, Cafe Imports, just brought its first microlot container to the U.S. at the end of the 2007 harvest. Today, Costa Rican microlot coffees are popular, in demand and very consistent quality.

The Las Lajas micromill is one of the few turning out stellar microlots and be organic certified. 

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 Honeys and Naturals in Central America, and for participating in the Cup of Excellence auction in 2009.
