This last post is of Finca Las Lajas. It's a world famous farm and mill. It's run and operated by Oscar and Fransisca Chacon. This farm was really special for me because I've competed with her coffees before and have done so much research on them but to finally see it in the flesh was more than amazing. Fransisca is truly a pioneer in our industry. She is constantly pushing the boundaries and trying out new processing methods. Her "Perla Negra" is world famous and is revered as some of the most exotic coffee in the world. She's creating new processing method all with meticulous attention to detail. I asked her what does she love most about being a farmer and producer and she said seeing people enjoy my coffee. What an amazing family and farm. Finally met one of my coffee heroes. #fanboy #copavidameetspuravida

Post 2/3. This is at the Aguilera (yes, like Christina Aguilera) Brothers farm. There are 8 brothers who run this farm. We only met 6 of them but they are doing some really cool things here. Every varietal they have here, they are processing as washed, honey, and natural. I got a sense of how proud they are of their work. Much like we are of ours. #puravida #copavidameetspuravida

Today was so amazing. This is part 1 of 3 posts for today. The first post is from our visit to Beneficio (Mill) La Eva where a lot of farmers send their coffees to get processed. Their facility is huge and they have the resources necessary to help farmers finish their processing. After that we went to visit Carlos and Diana at a micro-mill called Micro Beneficio La Perla de Cafe. They have a beautiful farm with all sorts of different varietals including Geshas, SL-28, and hybrids that are unique to their farms. Amazing amazing stuff. #puravida #copavidameetspuravida

On our way to Costa Rica for our first ever origin trip. We'll be visiting Coopedota and Finca Las Lajas in Tarrazu. This is truly a dream come true, to be able to go to origin but even more so it being Costa Rica, the birthplace of @copa_vida. Beyond excited. Thank you to the whole Copa team and to @changster12 for sending us and @allycoffee for hosting us! #letsgo #firstorigintrip #🍒 #☕️ #puravida #copavidameetspuravida

I don't post as much these days but today is definitely worth shouting out my beautiful wife. Valentine's day is pretty special to us cause it also marks our half year mark for our wedding anniversary. So today we celebrated our 2.5 years of marriage together on top of Valentine's . I think it's pretty silly that it requires a corporate holiday to force us to slow down and appreciate and cherish the ones we love but I think there should be more reasons to celebrate and appreciate our loved ones. Marriage is so full up and downs but I can't imagine doing this life with anyone else but you @michellelosangeles. Thank you so much for making me a better man, supporting me in my endeavors and for loving me when I truly feel unlovable at times. You are the love of my life. #happyvalentinesday #coffeejokes #sofine #nowletsmakesomebabies #letswait

Amazzinnngggggg. Come visit combine in Rancho Cucamonga! @eelekim awesome job!

Spending some qualiTEA time with my wife @michelle_k_la before the new year begins. We always take this time before the new year to reflect on what we are thankful for and discuss what we are most looking forward to next year. This year I'm thankful for another year of marriage and for the blessings that come with it. I'm thankful that although we are so flawed, God carries us through and fills in the areas we lack. Happy New Years everyone. Let's ring in the new year! #cupoften #happynewyearseve
