Oscar Chacón Solano is the producer at Las Lajas, a farm located on the volcanic soils of Sabanilla de Alajuela, Costa Rica at an elevation of 1500-1700masl. They make a compost-like organic fertiliser, using the pulp from coffee processing and other waste from nearby mills. This is further supplemented with liming amendments and minerals.
Only 100% ripe cherries with a high sugar content are harvested manually before making the trip to the Las Laja mill and separated into micro-lots for processing.
This black honey lot is first pulped, then dried on African beds over 15-20 days. During the first two days, the beans are not moved, but after that, periodic movements (3 to 4 times a day) are done to decrease the coffee's humidity.
