Beneficio Las Lajas ranks as one of the most progressive, high-quality coffee mills in all of Costa Rica. Francisca Cubillo and Oscar Chacón are the third generation of coffee producers in Costa Rica and the first once to process their own coffee. Las Lajas is one of the few farms in Costa Rica growing Organic coffee. Las Lajas specializes in several different types of honey-processed coffees as well as natural process coffees.

Sabana Redonda, it is one of the higher elevation farms that Las Lajas owns. This one is located on the foothills of “Poás” volcano at an altitude of 1600 meters above the sea level. The farm is truly excellent for specialty coffee due to its cool climate conditions and the volcanic soil.

Las Lajas micromill has perfected the craft of producing exceptional coffees using either method. Their Natural coffee process: Perla Negra and Alma Negra, and their Honey process: Yellow Honey, Red Honey and Black Honey consistently win awards for clarity and flavor. Black Honey refers to a method by which 100 percent of the mucilage is left after de-pulping and the coffee is turned once per day while drying. This technique allows the fruit more time to penetrate the coffee’s parchment layer, imparting a very sweet and unique profile.
