|Est. Price:||$18.62/12 ounces|

Quietly distinctive profile, low-toned with nut, toasted grain and sweet cocoa notes complicated by a deep, ripe-lemony tartness. Light-textured, creamy mouthfeel and long, crisply sweet finish.
Las Lajas is both a mill and a farm in the Central Valley of Costa Rica owned and managed by third-generation coffee farmer Francisca Salas and her family. This is a “honey” coffee, meaning the skin was removed from the coffee fruit immediately after picking but the beans or seeds were dried with at least some of the fruit pulp or “honey” still adhering to them. This practice contrasts to the more conventional wet or washed method, wherein both skin and pulp are removed from the beans before drying. The Roasterie (motto “Live Life on the Rim”) is a longtime leading, quality-oriented specialty roaster that emphasizes its commitment to "air roasting," a technology utilizing a column of hot air rather than the conventional turning drum to agitate the roasting beans.

Low-toned complexity, smoothly lively mouthfeel and easy, approachable acidity should make this a comfortable but engaging breakfast cup.
