Costa Rica Las Lajas Yellow Honey
The Las Lajas Micromill is a Costa Rican coffee powerhouse. Started by Francisca and Oscar Chacon, the Mill is credited with being among the first places in Costa Rica to produce high-quality honeys and naturals in 2008. Quality improvements have continued over the past decade, with organic processes and day lot separation helping the Chacon’s coffee stand above the crowd.
Red berries and citrus flavors combine with a honey-like sweetness to create an incredibly clean and complex cup. Each year, we send two of our team to visit the farms in and around the Las Lajas area, poised to select the next great coffee for our guests. This coffee was a delight on the cupping table, and we’re excited to feature it on our cafes’ Single Origin menu.
