Finca La Laja is located in the highlands of Cauca. The coffee plants grown in the pristine forest are outstanding in quality thanks to favourable climate and soil conditions. La Laja has been triple washed which brings deep flavours and great clarity to the cup. This year we are getting noticeably high sweetness with notes of dark berries, black tea and cacao. The body is nectar-like and rounded out. We love this coffee as a straight-up double shot or served as a cappuccino.
