Sourced from Las Lajas Micromill, this honey processed Costa Rica is delicious on nearly any brewing method! With berry sweetness balanced with baking spices, it is a nuanced and complex coffee. We love it as a pour over and espresso.
This is a honey process, where the ripe beans brought from the farm are classified to obtain those that are 100% ripe, then they are depulped and immediately transferred to raised beds. During the first day periodic movements are made (3 to 4 times a day), this with the aim of reducing the humidity of the coffee. This is an extremely fast drying process.

Where is this coffee sourced from?

Costa Rica
Las Lajas Micromill
Finca El Chilamate Farm
Oscar and Francisca Chacón are third-generation coffee producers, but the coffee is more than just in their family heritage: It's in their hearts and souls as well. The couple is committed to quality and innovation, and are among the very first farmers in Costa Rica to produce Honey and Natural process specialty coffee.

In 2005, after years of delivering their cherry to a cooperative for the going market price, they decided to join the brand-new "micromill revolution" and buy their own depulper to have more control over the quality and the price they received for their lots. "At first, we didn't know what we were doing," Oscar explains. "We were just experimenting." That experimentation led to some of the most exciting new flavor profiles we have ever tasted: Now, the Chacons produce a wide range of Honey process coffees, modulating the drying time in order to create different effects in the cup.

Necessity bred more innovation for the family when an earthquake in 2008 wiped out electricity and water to their area during the harvest. Unable to run the depulpers or to wash the mucilage off to produce Washed lots, Francisca took inspiration from her knowledge of African coffee production and quickly built raised beds on the property. Their Natural lots caught the attention of Cafe Imports' founder Andrew Miller, and the rest is both history and our-story.

What size bag should I order?

Great question! Ultimately, it just comes down to your coffee drinking rate, but we loosely recommend the following:

12 oz = Each bag brews approximately 2-3 cups per day for a week.
2 lb = Each bag brews approximately 2-3 cups per day for about 2-3 weeks.
5 lb = Each bag brews approximately 4-5 cups per day for about 3-4 weeks.
