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.
"Just opened a bag of these and made my first cup as a pour-over, and I don't understand how anyone can not be blown away by the taste! This is one of my favorites for sure. I do love naturals in general, but this one is more lively than most. If you are not loving it, you are making it wrong ;-)" (5 out of 5)

"Not my fave one. But I dont hate it either. The flavors are nice until I get to the currant, which Im not fond of. Other than that, the other berries are there. Definitely a bold one." (4 out of 5)

"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)
