We are in the coffee business by heritage; our grandparents started 50 years ago when all this lands were dedicated to pasture for livestock. Our grandfather decided to produce coffee instead and introduced the genuine Villa Sarchí variety to the farm. Thanks to him and my father, Mr. Manuel Barrantes, we were taught to work the land with effort and dedication.
Last year, we decided to become an independent company in order to involve our daughters and teach them the value of work.
This is our first year participating in Cup of Excellence and we really appreciate the hard work SCACR does, for all of us coffee producers, in promoting the quality of our coffees.
We like when buyers from different countries visit us, and we are then able to talk with them and find out for ourselves what they think of our coffee, this motivates us to keep working harder every day and give them the best quality.
The farm is named Chispita, after our dog. Some years ago we were visited by buyers and our youngest daughter Cristel, decided to take Chispita on the tour around the farms. When we got to this specific farm the dog found some ripe coffee cherries on the floor and started eating them. The buyers found this very funny and took pictures and videos to bring this amusement to their countries. After this day we decided to call the farm “Chispita”; you must know that Chispita will only eat cherries from this specific farm!
Attached some pictures of the milling, our family, coffee plantations and the famous dog!
Thank you again for appreciating our effort and coffee. It would be a pleasure to receive all of you in our farm!
