Oscar and Francesca, the pioneering farmers of Las Lajas, exemplify resilience and innovation. When faced with the 1995 Costa Rican earthquake, instead of abandoning their coffee crop, they defied convention, introducing natural processing techniques that revolutionized the industry. Their journey from experimental drying methods to leading the way in natural and honey-processed coffees showcases their relentless pursuit of excellence, trusting their instincts over external validation.

At the core of Las Lajas' continuous innovation is the 'Doble Diamond' coffee. Built upon the success of 'Black Diamond,' it incorporates an anaerobic pre-fermentation step, enhancing its profile and representing the next frontier in coffee. Las Lajas isn't merely keeping pace with trends; they're actively shaping the future of coffee, with 'Double Diamond' serving as a symbol of their commitment to excellence and forward-thinking approach.
