Farmer Story

Oscar and Francisca Chacón are third-generation coffee producers, but the coffee is more than just in their family heritage: It's in their hearts and souls as well. The
couple is committed to quality and innovation, and are among the very first farmers
in Costa Rica to produce Honey and Natural process specialty coffee.
In 2005, after years of delivering their cherry to a cooperative for the going market
price, they decided to join the brand-new "micromill revolution" and buy their own
depulper to have more control over the quality and the price they received for their
lots. "At first, we didn't know what we were doing," Oscar explains. "We were just
experimenting." That experimentation led to some of the most exciting new flavor
profiles we have ever tasted: Now, the Chacons produce a wide range of Honey
process coffees, modulating the drying time in order to create different effects in
the cup.
