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.
This particular offering is an Perla Negra Natural. The coffee cherries are dried in direct sunlight and turned often throughout the day. The Natural process creates a bright, vibrant flavor profile that is unique to the process. It stands out amongst other coffees and is sought after for the bright, citrus profile.
