La Laja is a family farming and milling group in Veracruz, Mexico. The farm began in 1920 when Hermilo Sampieri bought his first coffee farm in Huatusco. Eventually his son joined the business and started the milling and export side. Over the years, the family farms grew to four farms in Veracruz - Finca La Laja, Finca El Mirador, Finca Las Palmas, and Finca La Veracruz which grows the robusta variety - and three farms in the state of Puebla. La Laja also buys cherry from small producers in the state of Chiapas, so they offer a wide range of qualities, regions, and processing methods. Their wet mills are in Veracruz and Puebla and their dry mill and export office is in Veracruz.

Cupping notes: Milk chocolate, candied citrus, earthy finish.
