Calle Lajas farm is part of the Las Lajas micro-mill, operated by third generation coffee growers. 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 have benefited from a commitment to technological improvements, and ownership's dedicated attention to detail produces a special quality in every harvest. This is a farm that we will continue to source from in the future.
