Description: La Laja is a family farming and milling group in Veracruz, Mexico. The farm began in 1920 when Hermilo Sampieri bought his first coffee farm in Huatusco. Eventually his son (also named Hermilo Sampieri) joined the business and started the milling and export side. Over the years, the family farms grew to four farms in Veracruz - Finca La Laja, Finca El Mirador, Finca Las Palmas, and Finca La Veracruz which grows the robusta variety - and three farms in the state of Puebla. La Laja also buys cherry from small producers in the state of Chiapas, so they offer a wide range of qualities, regions, and processing methods. Their wet mills are in Veracruz and Puebla and their dry mill and export office is in Veracruz.

La Laja also runs a nursery where they provide coffee seedlings to their own farms and to producers from whom they buy cherry. They have on-staff agronomists who provide technical training to producers, as well as a pre-harvest lending program to support smallholder farmers with loans. La Laja has Rainforest Alliance and Utz certified coffees.

After depulping, the coffee was dried slowly on covered raised beds for 20 days. We get lots of sweetness in this coffee, with notes of Honey, Vanilla, and Citrus, we think it is a great option for someone wanting a chuggable cup.

A good solid coffee.

This is the best green coffee I’ve purchased from Bodhi Leaf. It has a solid, deep yet mild strength without any odd, fruity flavors. If you just want a good, fresh cup of coffee, this is it.

We get our beans from the farms and roast coffee daily. We truly are farm to cup.
