This roast is berries galore! A juicy-sweet coffee that has all the flavor of a blackberry pie fresh from the oven (but none of the baking required).
Las Lajas is organically certified and follows strict sustainability standards. To counteract the lack of altitude, Francisca and Oscar have opted to only use Honey and Natural processes in processing the coffee. That way, they preserve all the fruit flavors available in the coffee cherry. You will be hard pressed to find more delicious coffee in Costa Rica or anywhere. Medium round body with notes of blackberry, raspberry, and black currant, with a milk chocolate finish.
"Chemex. Really quite good. Very fruity, but really a bit darker than I like for these fruit flavors. I prefer more of a floral note with those flavors. That said, would try again. Tempted to get a bag of this one." (5 out of 5)
