BENEFICIO LAS LAJAS, Alajuela, Costa Rica
A farm of near legendary status, Las Lajas has been producing coffee since 1840. Nestled in the foothills of the Poas volcano in the Sabanilla of Alajuela region of Costa Rica, the farm has been passed down from generation to generation. Oscar Chacon and his wife Francisca currently head the farm and are the third generation of coffee producers preserving the legacy of Las Lajas.
Las Lajas is a certified-organic micromill located in Sabanilla de Alajuela in the Central Valley region of Costa Rica. Organic composts are produced on site using vermiculture (worm composting), and the production process is entirely free of chemicals and agro-toxins.
The mill is located in the Desengaño slump, formed by the Barva and Poas volcanos. During the harvest season, cold winds unique to the area pass through, creating a special microclimate that aids in flavor development during honey processing.
