The Lagunita lot returns in a washed process. Grown just below the high elevation of the famous El Matazano lot, La Lagunita is situated near a beautiful mountain lagoon on the Los Planes estate. The Bourbon coffee that grows there benefits from plentiful irrigation and cool, humid temperatures.
Nine years ago Finca Los Planes became our first Direct Trade partner. On our first visit it was clear to us their commitment to quality and sustainable practices is top priority. They have been engaged in multiple sustainable initiatives over the last few years. Most recently Finca Los Planes installed a new water recovery system to protect the water supply and purify the water before being released back into the ecosystem.
This light-medium roasted coffee features a sweet almond and orange aroma. When brewed it has a creamy body and mandarin acidity with a milk chocolate flavor and orange sweetness. The finish has a pleasant spice of coriander and hazelnut.
