DESCRIPTION

 

Oscar and Francisca Chacón are the third generation of coffee producers. With all of their family expertise, they were among the first in Costa Rica to offer natural processed coffee beans, but also honey. It was in 2005 that they took full control of their production by buying their own pulper. This way, the entire production is carried out on the farm and a better income is guaranteed to producers.

 

In 2008, bad luck fell on the farm. A earthquake cut off electricity and water during harvest making it impossible to transformation with a washed process, customary at that time in Costa Rica. Never ceasing innovation, Francisca was inspired by African methods and built drying beds. This is how the natural process made its appearance in Las Lajas. Precisely, this natural coffee will charm you with its sweet aromas of caramel, cherry and tangerine.
