The brothers are back! Our sophomore release from Luis Alberto and Oscar Adolfo Monge is a honey processed Catuai from Tarrazú – one of Costa Rica’s most acclaimed growing regions.
Luis and Oscar built the La Lia mill, naming it after their mother, in 2007. As their family's third generation of coffee growers, they grew up learning trade secrets and honing a passion for agriculture. The love and meticulous care they’ve put into their crops is reflected in the final cup, and the growing conditions could not be more idyllic: rich volcanic soil, high altitudes, and afternoon cloud cover for cherries to slowly ripen.
We’re proud to partner with these brothers who not only share impeccable coffees, but act as stewards for their workers and community. They recognize the importance of fair wages and strive to ensure that team members and their families have a good quality of life. They also implement programs to support their community, promote growth, and learning in different areas.
Great coffee, great people. What more can you ask for?
Guaranteed to be shipped within seven days of the roast date.
