Costa Rica Las Lajas

Oscar and Francisca Chacon are almost unique in Costa Rica, as they are one of the only micro millers to still produce certified organic coffee. Whilst many Costa Rican coffee farmers have stopped producing organically, the Chacon family have remained true to their principles.  Their passion for coffee has led them to experiment with different honey and natural processes and consequently the Las Lajas brand has become famous in the specialty coffee sector.  

The Alma Negra natural process begins with a selective harvest, where only the ripest cherries that have brix measurements of more than 18% are picked.  Once picked, the cherries are washed to remove floaters and transferred to patios for drying. The cherries are then moved intermittently over a period of 22 - 27 days, depending on weather conditions.
