Eric and Jenny live in the mountains of Costa Rica along with Jenny’s mom, and Jenny’s two children, Amanda and Santiago. Together with Jenny’s family, they have dedicated themselves to growing, processing, and roasting only the best gourmet coffee to bring to the United States by way of Raleigh, NC.
Eric, a born and raised Raleigh native, moved to Costa Rica in 2011 to pursue his dream of opening a surf bar and restaurant off the beaten path in Playa Pavones near Panama. There he met Jenny. Jenny’s family had been growing coffee on their small San Vito farm in the mountain rainforest region of southern Costa Rica for four generations. In 2014, Eric bought a piece of land next to Jenny’s and immersed himself in the ins and outs of growing and producing premium Costa Rican coffee: thus, Oso Farms Coffee was born.
Along with growing coffee, the Oso Farms family enjoys growing and raising their own food on the farm, cooking and creating new recipes in the kitchen, and enjoying the beauty and nature of Costa Rica and the Pura Vida life.
