Our Farmers

the farmers

The owners of Las Lajas, Oscar and Francisca Chacón, are third generation coffee farmers known for their organic processes that produce spectacular coffees and immaculately processed coffee fruit tea, which we have used for our inaugural batch of Husky.

the family

After the tragic loss of their father due to a pesticide-caused illness in 1980, Oscar and Francisca vowed to grow organically. Las Lajas was one of the first farms to produce organic coffee and remains one of the only certified-organic farms in Costa Rica.

the farm

The name Las Lajas describes the indigenous-crafted stone artifacts found on the farm. The farm is divided into several parcels,each with its own unique micro-climate. With its organic process and volcanic soil, Las Lajas is one of the best coffee farms in the world.

Our Story

our founder

Our founder, Crawford, spent more than a decade in the finance world. In 2019 he unwound his portfolio and lived on a coffee farm in Colombia. On the coffee farm he discovered how coffee farmers use coffee byproducts for fuel, fertilizer and even tea. The vision for Husky was born.

our team

We assembled a team of managers and advisors with extensive marketing, logistics and supply chain experience. From a cold brew coffee entrepreneur to the former Chief of Staff to the CEO of the world’s most recognized coffee brand.

our vision

Our vision is to change the world through the coffee fruit but not in the traditional way. We are creating a movement crafted with the healthy, delicious and sustainable superfruit of the coffee tree.

our mission is to improve the well-being of farmers, consumers and our environment
