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.

Necessity bred more innovation for the family when an earthquake in 2008 wiped

out electricity and water to their area during the harvest. Unable to run the

depulpers or to wash the mucilage off to produce Washed lots, Francisca took

inspiration from her knowledge of African coffee production and quickly built raised beds on the property. Their Natural lots caught the attention of Cafe Imports' founder Andrew Miller, and the rest is both history and our-story.
