Triple berry pie, rose and cocoa sounds like a fun fall cup of coffee!
What is a Yellow Diamond you may ask? Well, it's an experimental Honey Processed coffee! No, honey isn't used in the process. It means that the coffee fruit is only partially removed after it is picked. What makes this rare is the unique drying process Las Lajas has perfected. Utilizing an extremely slow drying process within a very tightly controlled temperature range leaves this coffee with more sugars in the fermentation process, brighter acidity, and a cleaner cup!Oscar and Francisca Chacón are third-generation coffee producers, but the coffee is more than just in their family heritage: It's in their hearts and souls as well. The couple is committed to quality and innovation, and are among the very first farmers in Costa Rica to produce Honey and Natural process specialty coffee. In 2005, after years of delivering their cherry to a cooperative for the going market price, they decided to join the brand-new "micro-mill revolution" and buy their own depulper to have more control over the quality and the price they received for their lots. "At first, we didn't know what we were doing," Oscar explains. "We were just experimenting." That experimentation led to some of the most exciting new flavor profiles we have ever tasted: Now, the Chacons produce a wide range of Honey process coffees, modulating the drying time in order to create different effects in the cup.
