First part of the trip was cantered around the Las Lajas Estate & micro mill, a farm we are familiar with and have enjoyed their coffees for several years. Oscar and Fransisca make and their family in their own words ‘live coffee’ as their house is maybe all of 10m from the mill & drying beds!
Well known for a couple of years now for processing exceptional honey and natural coffees, the key is in fastidious attention to detail and not being afraid of experimentation. As Oscar said on one of our long talks; “It is the responsibility of the barista and the producer to innovate in coffee”. As the roaster in the middle, I think we hold the key to marrying the innovation at both ends of the coffee chain – a big responsibility!
