Description

For more than 26 years, Mr. Régulo Gerardo Ureña Chacón has dedicated his life to the coffee production. Out of their passion for coffee, Mr. Régulo with his wife Isabel, and sons, Ricardo, Mario, Esteban, Luis y Tatiana, started their own micro mill, Café Rivense del Chirripó S.A., where all the coffee is 100% sun dried.

They wanted a sustainable production, so they let the pasture areas regenerate and then they planted coffee. They kept all the native trees of the region and planted fruit trees that will feed the birds. They have protected the water springs by soil maintenance practices and for the last two years have received the Ecologic Blue Flag award.

It is name La Guaca, “The Gem” or “The Tomb” because the people of the region used to look for gold and it is believed that the indigenous people had buried a treasure.
