Finca Bosque Lya achieved fame in specialty industry when it placed first in 2004 Cup Of Excellence. The farm's 96 hectares are split between coffee production (64 Ha) and natural wild rain forest. However, in many parts of the farm it is difficult to recognize what is pure forest and what isn't, since so many shade trees are used. There is an abundance of wildlife as well as lots of fantastic flowers including rare orchid species.
Cupping notes: This coffee has lovely smooth well balanced body. It is lively and sweet with hints of caramel, butter, plum, cherry and praline. Loves milk.
