Oscar and Francisca Chacon of Las Lajas Micromill are third-generation coffee producers and they are best known for being among the first to produce honey coffees in Costa Rica. Las Lajas Micromilll is also one of the only certified organic mill in the area. They are continuously trying to enhance their infrastructure by investing back to their facility have a good growing condition. To mitigate their water usage, Oscar uses a Penagos demucilaginator to depulp his coffee, and since the coffees are all natural or honey process, very little water is used at the mill. In 2008, they began producing coffees with honey process after an earthquake blocked them from accessing water for a few weeks.

They produce several different types of honeys and naturals and they also determine which process to apply based on the weather on the day the coffee is harvested.

For their Honeys, 100% of the mucilage is left on the coffee, and the coffee is dried in different ways. For this coffee, the process utilized was red honey where the coffee is turned several times a day on the bed but not as frequently as for yellow honey.

This is very pleasant fall coffee as it gives out a rich flavour of well ripe apple that can be brewed with various methods.
