Costa Rica El Guachepelin (ORG)

Oscar and Francisca Chacon of Las Lajas Micromill are third-generation coffee
producers who are committed to quality and innovation, and are probably best
known for being among the first to produce honey coffees in Costa Rica. The
micromill is also one of the only certified-organic mills in the area, and the Chacons
take their environmental impact very seriously.

As average temperatures rise and the weather patterns change, the Chacons are
considering adding more shade trees to their farm to moderate the heat, and to
add irrigation systems to combat the inconsistent rainy seasons Costa Rica has had
the past few years. To mitigate their water usage, Oscar uses a Penagos
demucilaginator to depulp his coffee, and since the coffees are all natural or honey
process, very little water is used at the mill.

Harvesting and processing are overseen with great care by both Oscar and
Francisca: During the harvest, Francisca will measure the Brix of the cherry to
determine the optimal ripeness, and picking will begin when the Brix reads about
22.
