Costa Rica - Las Lajas, Yellow Honey

Costa Rica - Las Lajas, Yellow Honey

Why we picked this coffee:

We wanted something that was exciting and special. A coffee that even us coffee nerds get a little excited to try. 

We selected it as a contrast to the Pure coffee we picked. Together you get to try two very different coffees that also taste great.

Cajamarca is a semi-dry, semi-cold, tropical highland of Peru with very fertile soil at high Andean mountain elevations. All of these factors contribute to the potential of specialty coffee production in the area, which is growing. 

Rony Lavan is an ambitious and quality-driven cupper who has spent his career trying to carve out better and bolder coffees from small producers in Peru. As president of the Lima Coffees exporting organization, Rony has already established himself as standing at the fore of microlot-quality coffees in Cajamarca. His first year with Lima Coffees, he entered the national competition and won; with the introduction of the Cup of Excellence competition to Peru in 2017, the country is poised to enter the international spotlight for its finest offerings. Rony and his coffees will be the ones to watch.
