Paúl Cascante Ureña's family is well-known as some of the premier coffee growers in the Tarrazu region. The coffee trees he tends were planted around the time he was born thirty years ago. A degree in agronomy and his knowledge of coffee cultivation allows him to make decisions for the farm’s future, such as mixing his own fertilizer, selecting optimal varieties for planting, and promoting the farm’s coffee.
The family deliver coffees to the Palmichal mill for many decades. The microlot program at Palmichal is designed for farmers with a promising terroir, quality varieties, and a passion for producing specialty coffee. The program has high standards for delivering only ripe cherries to the mill. The Ureña’s coffee is Honey processed and Paúl has been an excellent participant in the program.
