Dona Francisca and her husband Oscar Chacon, with the Las Lajas micro mill are 3rd generation coffee producers. Both Francisca and Oscar believe in preservation of the environment. They were one of the first pioneers of high-quality honey and natural process coffees in Central America. Since their coffees do not undergo the standard washing process, water use at the mill is minimal.

Does this coffee have honey in it?
No. Honey processed coffee is dried with the skins removed but with some of the fruit pulp (mucilage) still adhering to the beans. This coffee is classified as black honey, meaning the coffee is rotated once a day, as opposed to yellow or red honey which is turned every hour or several times a day, respectively.
