Calle Lajas farm is part of the Las Lajas micro-mill and is operated by third-generation coffee growers. Located in the foothills of the mighty Poas volcano, this micro-mill started to produce honey coffees in 2008 after an earthquake halted the mill’s access to water for several weeks.
As a certified-organic mill, managing environmental impact is a primary focus. The addition of more shade trees and irrigation improvements are being applied this year to prepare for potential climate changes.
The micro-lots of Calle Lajas farm have benefited from a commitment to technological improvements. The ownership’s dedicated attention to detail produces a special quality every harvest for this Costa Rican coffee. This is a farm that we will continue to source from in the future.
