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 and Natural coffees in Costa Rica in the 2000s.

The micromill is also one of the only certified-organic mills in the area. The Chacons produce several different types of Honeys and Naturals: for their Honeys, 100% of the mucilage is left on the coffee, and the coffee is dried in different ways.

The Chacons produce several different types of Honeys and Naturals: for their Honeys, 100% of the mucilage is left on the coffee, and the coffee is dried in different ways. Oscar believes that just as the roast profile will change the flavour of a coffee, the drying curve also has an impact. The Chacons determine which process to use based on the weather on the day the coffee is harvested, as well as the desired profile.
