The Producer

The Las Lajas farm nestles in the foothills of the Poas Volcano, located outside the town of Sabanilla in central Costa Rica. 

The name Las Lajas comes from the Spanish version of an Arabic word for the indigenous-crafted stone artifacts found on the farm when it was first planted. The farm has 38 hectares of land divided into several parcels, each growing various shade tree species and creating unique micro-climates. In addition, different lots process coffee differently—some as naturals, others are either honeys or washed. Las Lajas' farming diversity allows the farm to create several different products with different characteristics, all within a contained area. There is a rich tradition of coffee farming in the Chacón family: generations have owned and produced coffee on their land for over 80 years.

After the tragic loss of their father due to pesticide-caused illness in 1980, Oscar and Francisca decided to do what their hearts told them was best for their family. The two began growing organically. This decision to farm organically was difficult initially because premiums were not paid for organics at the time. The two risked financial stability. As pioneers, the Chacón family saw the value in building a healthier farm. Today, many farmers and cooperatives benefit from the risk Oscar, Francisca, and other farmers took many years ago. Las Lajas was one of the first farms to produce Organic coffee. It remains one of the only Certified-Organic farms in Costa Rica.

Cascara (Coffee Husk)

Coffee from las Lajas is well known for its fantastic quality; this is why we know you’ll love the cascara (coffee husk) from their cherries! The Chacón’s devote as much attention to their cascara as they do to their award-winning coffees.
