After visiting the farm we were able to taste the first coffees coming off the farm and the drying beds/patio. Each and every coffee tasted amazing. We selected a nice lot of semi-washed that will be prepared to our specifications as well as the “on its way to being famous” Perla Negra natural-processed microlot.
As you can see from these pictures, the farm looks healthy, everyone was happy, and the coffee tasted great. That’s what responsible organic farming and direct trade relationships are all about!
Last September, we won the Nexty award by Natural Products Expo for the best new product in the coffee category. Specifically, it was for the Las Lajas Perla Negra natural-processed microlot. Last week we handed the award to its rightful owners: Francisca, Oscar and their family. They are the ones that work incredibly hard year-round to deliver delicious organic coffee to our roastery.
