Our newest lot from Finca Los Planes! 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. The exceptional sweetness of this coffee is enhanced by the honey process, allowing the coffee to dry with the mucilage still on the bean. Our light roast brings this sweetness forward with notes of marzipan, berries, and apricots while preserving it’s delightfully creamy body.
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 lightly roasted coffee features a vanilla and berry aroma, creamy body, and bright acidity. When brewed it has notes of cashew with a glazed apricot sweetness. Raspberries and a gentle note of marzipan finish the cup.
