About this Coffee

Finca La Laja uses the honey process method, in which coffee cherries are picked, sorted, and have the skin of the coffee cherry removed without removing the sweet mucilage (the honey!) underneath. The sticky, sweet layer of the fruit is left on the bean while it's drying. The natural sugars concentrate and seep into the bean itself, creating the unusual and naturally sweet cup profile.
