COSTA RICA

LAS LAJAS | ALMA NEGRA

Oscar and his wife Francisca process solely honeys and naturals, which is still considered a rarity and something quite special in Costa Rica. They also experiment with other new processing methods such as Anaerobic and Black Honey. Their knowledge about diverse and complex processing methods grew over the last couple of years and has made them a role model amongst producers. They only process their own beans, which come from their own 60-acre farm. Varieties are predominantly Catuaí and Caturra as well as Villa Sarchí.
