Single Origin Release: Costa Rica Las Lajas Honey

9/14/18
One of the only certified organic farms in Costa Rica, Las Lajas is located outside the town of Sabanilla in central Costa Rica. The owners, Francisca and Oscar Chacón, are third generation coffee producers known for their attention to detail in every step of production, most notably, their processing procedures. The 38 hectares of land are split into several sections that have unique microclimates and the coffees from each section are processed differently. This variance in processing creates noticeably different flavor profiles in the end product.
