We love to celebrate the awesome things that happen when strong relationships are built between producers and roasters like Hasbean. Finca Licho, who produce world-class Costa Rican coffee, is a shining reflection of those ethos. An unfortunate reality of coffee farming is unscrupulous coffee buyers making promises they don’t honour. That’s not us, so we’re extra mindful of not asking too much from producers early on. We earn their trust first. We’ve worked with Finca Licho since 2007 and increasingly showed we’re reliable, so a great relationship was born.

Finca Licho is owned by and ran by Los Hermanos Aguilera. The Aguilera family of 12 brothers and sisters inherited the business from their parents, who started growing coffee over 50 years ago. They manage the entire farm with the help of their third generation—the mill and drying patios, fertilising and pruning coffee trees and more. They have a reputation for their deep understanding of quality at the farm and mill level, which shows in the Costa Rican coffee they produce. It’s a big part of why we’re always excited to work with them.

We first bought from Finca Licho in 2007 when it was awarded fourth place in the Cup of Excellence. The farm is situated 1,500 metres above sea level in Naranjo, an excellent coffee producing region. It’s become a firm favourite with our community and team who look forward to its arrival each year.
