This coffee is a one of a kind. We cupped it with the Chacon's at their micromill and immediately fell in love with it. It's chocolatey, with winey acidity and deep fruit notes. It's a Natural process, meaning the coffee cherry is left on the seeds during the drying process and the coffee is intentionally fermented.

The Chacon’s are the pioneers for innovative processing in Costa Rica. They own and operate the Las Lajas Micromill, where they process coffee in a multitude of ways. They began experimenting with processing after an earthquake dismantled their access to power and electricity, forcing for innovation. The Chacon’s continue to lead the industry in Honey and Natural processing, creating unique profiles and complex cups of coffee. Their coffee is a seasonal staple for us, and we have been fortunate to meet with them year after year.

One of the most famous or recognized coffee growing regions, Costa Rica grows many different varieties and uses creative techniques in processing them. The prevalence of personal or cooperatively owned micro-mills has given producers the opportunity to experiment and develop many unique traditions for post harvest processing. Known for honey processed coffees with balanced body and florally sweet acidity, Costa continues to impress and innovate. Washed process, dry process and every nuance in between.
