The Holiday Bean is back! From its aromas of molasses and peanut brittle to its flavor of butterscotch with red apple acidity, this special coffee is a crowd-pleaser. Its soft body and milk chocolate sweetness are followed by an aftertaste of caramel and pecan, with just a hint of sage. It's the perfect accompaniment to any holiday dessert.

This approachable honey process coffee from Finca Los Planes makes a great gift!
Grown just below the high elevation of the famous El Matazano lot, La Lagunita is situated near a beautiful mountain lagoon on the Los Planes estate. The Bourbon coffee that grows there benefits from plentiful irrigation and cool, humid temperatures. The exceptional sweetness of this coffee is enhanced by the honey process, in which the coffee dries with the mucilage still on the bean. Our light-medium roast brings this sweetness forward.
Finca Los Planes is our original Direct Trade partner. On our first visit to Los Planes, it was clear to us Sergio and Isabel’s commitment to quality and sustainable practices is top priority. They have been engaged in multiple sustainable initiatives over the last few years. Most recently Finca Los Planes installed a new water recovery system to protect the water supply and purify the water before being released back into the ecosystem.
