Description: Las Lomas is a farm that the Alvarez Family have been perfecting since 1957. Their strict, quality-driven standards for growing and processing make for a really impressive coffee. Growing Bourbon and Pacas varieties is very challenging at this elevation, in a country where leaf rust can be devastating. We can’t express enough how impressed we are with this coffee. Las Lomas coffee grows under native shade trees, improving and conserving the soil, while also encouraging biodiversity on the farm. This is a coffee built for daily drinking. It would make for a perfect drip coffee, or even blend component.
This was a sweet surprise on the cupping table with notes of Caramel, Milk Chocolate, Hazelnut, and Vanilla.
