A Coffee nation since long, but in the past few years determined to step into the limelight. And Finca Las Lajas, led by Nélida Zurita, deserves all the light it can get.
Nélida - a single mother - is on one hand the leader of the women’s committee of the local cooperative and is dedicated to motivate more women to produce coffee & vegetables and gain independence.
On the other hand she's a creative and determined coffee grower, experimenting with the fermentations of her coffees to try and reveal the full potential of different varietals. In this case, the coffee is fermented without oxygen for 90 hrs. The result is like drinking a cup of cocoa, perfect if you are looking for something sweet & lower in acidity. An absolute must for the Moka Pot lover!
