A well processed natural coffee has this incredible way of transforming an average cup into a full sensory experience. With this coffee we wanted to push that even further, by showcasing two of our favorite African origins. Half coming from the Guji Zone in Ethiopia and the other from the Mafigina Plateau of Zambia. These coffees have been meticulously sorted by hand and by using color sorters to make sure only the ripest, sweetest beans end up in your cup. Together, these two coffees create a clean, fruity experience with flavors that remind us of Hibiscus, Mixed Berries and Nutella toast.
Last year we traveled to the mountains of Huehuetenango, Guatemala and had the opportunity to meet with farmer, Francisco Morales. In the hopes of building relationships with producers, who are pushing the boundaries of what we consider exceptional coffees, Francisco's commitment to learning and sharing stories was the determining factor for a continued relationship. This years crop proves that his curiosity can lead to higher quality. This coffee was dried under shaded nets, to improve the gradual process of drying, with the aim to enhance flavor and prolong shelf life. The result of meticulous attention to detail is this incredible cup. Enjoy!
COSTA RICA LAS LAJAS HONEY
Tasting notes: Mixed Berry - Wildflower - Pie Crust
Francisca and Oscar Chacon, owners and operators of the Las Lajas Micromill are third-generation coffee producers and are know for being the pioneers of producing high quality honey processed coffees in Costa Rica. This particular lot is a Yellow Honey process. In the processing method they remove the fruit and leave 100% of the mucilage left on, this coffee is then slowly dried, being turned hourly on the bed. In the past we have served these coffees and are excited to once again bring the fruit of the Chacon's labor to SD.
