Brothers Luis Alberto and Oscar Monge have been making some of the most interesting coffees I’ve ever tasted in Costa Rica. On my first trip there in 2012, we tasted a coffee from them that we would go on to use to represent Canada in the World Barista Championships. We are excited to share another exemplary coffee from these men, a Gesha was processed as black honey. After depulping, the coffee was moved to dry on raised beds in the open air where the remaining mucilage took on a blackish colour, which is where the term black honey gets its name.

The La Lia marries all the flavours we love about the Gesha variety, floral aromas and a citrusy acidity, with flavours of strawberry and blueberry imparted by the black honey process.
