By heritage of our grandparents, we are dedicated to the coffee production. 50 years ago, these lands were pasture crops for livestock but my grandfather decided to produce coffee instead, and introduced the variety Villa Sarchí to the farm. Thanks to him and my father Mr. Manuel Barrantes, we were taught to work the land with effort and dedication. We really like when buyers from different countries visit us; finding out by ourselves what they think of our coffee motivates us to keep working hard every day to give the best in quality.
The farm is named Chispita, which means “Sparky” because once we were visited by a few buyers, our youngest daughter Cristel decided to take with us our dog, called Chispita, to give the tour of the farm. When we were on that farm the dog found some ripe coffee beans on the ground and started to eat them. The buyers found this funny and took pictures and videos to their countries and show other people. That is the reason why from that day on we call the farm Chispita (“Sparky”)
Thank you again for appreciating our effort. It would be a pleasure to receive all of you in our farm!
