Coffee Description

This natural “black diamond” coffee is grown and processed at the Las Lajas micro-mill in Costa Rica We had the privilege of meeting Francisca when she visited us a few years ago with the Legendary Coffee Producer Tour, hosted by Cafe Imports.

What makes this black diamond process different from all the rest, is the intentional curing process. It is still a Natural process, but the drying period takes between 15 to 22 days. The process is very similar to their other Natural processes, beginning with the rigorous harvesting standards, sorting, and drying for one day on raised beds. Then the beans are moved from the raised beds to the drying patio.
