Oscar and Francisca Chacón are third-generation coffee producers, but the coffee is more than just in their family heritage.  In 2005, after years of delivering their cherry to a cooperative for the going market price, they decided to invest in their own depulper and processing infrastructure and Las Lajas Micromill was born.

 

The couple is committed to quality and innovation and were among the very first farmers in Costa Rica to produce Honey and Natural process specialty coffee. At first this was out of sheer necesssity when an earthquake knocked out their electrciity - unable to run their depulper and water pumps they turned to the Natural process and quickly built african style rasied beds to aid in the quality and production of this new style which has since become a hallmark of the countries speciality coffee production.

 

These days the Chacon's oversee multiple farms in the country with Finca Los Pinitos situated in the high alitudes of Costa Rica's West Valley in the Cirri Sur district. The farm has leant heavily towards experimentation with new varietals with this lot of Geisha shining as a classic Natural.
