Jon and Marianella took a chance in life. They gave up their successful careers and comfortable lifestyle in the United States and purchased a coffee farm in the mountains of Naranjo.
There was a risk, and there was a challenge. But, there was also passion and adventure. With the professional expertise of their coffee engineer, Adrian (a second-generation coffee expert, and graduate from the University of Costa Rica in Agricultural Engineering with a specialty in Coffee), and the hard-earned wisdom of their loyal farm worker, Chevo (40 years of experience working in coffee ), they dove into each phase of the seed-to-cup journey from planting, soil analysis, water and shade management, soil nutrition, harvest, wet mill and dry mill process to exporting their beans to the United States.
