La Lapa is grown on small farms in the valleys and slopes of the Central and West Valley. This region's soil has a slight acidity as a result of volcanic ashes. Both areas share well-defined wet and dry seasons, ideal for cherry development during the summer months. Altitude and climate define the size and hardness of the cherry, both factors influencing the quality in cup, particularly its acidity.

The convergence of the Caribbean and Pacific climates also plays their part in the smooth delicate flavour, subtle acidity and subtle sweetness of the region’s coffee

TASTING NOTES:
Dark chocolate with perfectly balanced apple sweet acidity and a rich toffee finish.

Best served as a long black made with rain water or try it as filter, maybe a V60 to bring out more malt and delicate floral sweetness from this fine origin.
