The Chacons are third generation coffee producers whose passion for the coffee industry is evident in the care and expertise they impart in every lot of coffee they process. The Las Lajas mill is well known for their unique and exotic honey and natural process coffees. Their process has evolved and adapted over the years, and also prompted a trend in natural process microlots in Costa Rica.
For the Black Diamond coffee, the Chacons adopted a special, extended drying process. The cherry was transferred to raised beds with 100% of the mucilage attached to the bean. It remained there for up to six hours to begin the drying process under full sun, and was then transferred to covered patios.
The cherries were then heaped in mountains or collected in sacks to extend the drying process, while keeping the temperature low. The objective was to achieve an intense, juicy and bright cup profile.
