IN 2008 AN EARTHQUAKE SHOOK COSTA RICA’S CENTRAL VALLEY, AND THE WATER SUPPLY TO LAS LAJAS MILL WAS UNEXPECTEDLY INTERRUPTED FOR SEVERAL. RATHER THAN LOSE A STAGGERING AMOUNT OF COFFEE TO THE INABILITY TO PROCESS IT (TRADITIONAL METHODS IN CENTRAL AND SOUTH AMERICA REQUIRE FRESH WATER) THEY DECIDED TO EXPERIMENT USING DRY PROCESSES, NAMELY SUN-DRIED NATURALS AND HONEY PROCESSED COFFEES. THE RESULTS WERE SO IMPRESSIVE THAT THEY NOW FOCUS EXCLUSIVELY ON THESE METHODS OF PROCESSING COFFEE. WE’VE BEEN COMING BACK TO THEIR COFFEES FOR A FEW YEARS, AND THIS LOT OF SUN-DRIED NATURAL PROCESS COFFEE CAUGHT OUR ATTENTION. IT’S FRUITY, COMPLEX, TROPICAL AND PULLS AND INTENSELY SWEET SHOT OF ESPRESSO (AS WELL AS A KILLER CUP OF COFFEE…)
