Third generation producers Francisca and Oscar Chacón operate the Las Lajas micromill in Costa Rica’s Central Valley. All of their lots are strictly organic and processed in accordance with varying weather patterns, and these differences in processing lend unique characteristics to each offering. Once the Perla Negra lot is harvested, the whole coffee cherries are moved immediately to raised beds to dry. It is turned regularly throughout the day. This greater degree of agitation exposes the lot to more light, thus drying the lot at a quicker pace. This is a traditional natural through and through, and it is in many ways reminiscent of naturally processed Ethiopian coffees. Expect traditional berry, dark fruit, and stone fruit flavors.
