Google 'Cameron's coffee company' in the USA. Owner is the founder of this company now one of the
leading specialty coffee companies in the USA. The artisan chocolate business is in the same place
'Specialty Coffee' was in the late 70's. A new and exciting addition to the chocolate industry which is
experiencing the identical transformation as the coffee industry did in the late 70's, 80's and continues
today. The timing is right!
This artisan chocolate company is perched ready to expand similarly but needs youth and energy. If you
are looking for a little business with out limitations and a business you can be excited to talk about, this
is that company. We applied all of the same principles we used in developing Cameron's Coffee
Company in the USA 40 years ago. All of the licensing, patents, recipes, registeros, electronic invoicing,
approved commercial kitchen etc are all up to date and correct.

While I do not have a number, there are thousands and thousands of tourists from all over the world who
travel through Sierpe each year. Chocolate tours are a sought after experience here in Costa Rica but
there are very few. Tours would be a great cash cow and addition to the well established bar business
and could easily be tapped into here.
The coffee roasting business is ready to go but I have not given it the attention as we fell in love with the
chocolate business. We have everything in order to roast and sell coffee but have not pursued it with
the passion of the chocolate. We do roast great coffee for friends, family and , of course, our own
Sierpe is one of those 'undiscovered jewels' in Costa Rica. While many pass through on there way to the
close by and famous Corcovado National Park, few actually spend the night in this quaint little river town.
Situated on a dead end newly paved road, Sierpe is safe and quiet. The people of Sierpe are friendly,
happy and kind. There are several riverfront cafes, bakery, and most of the conveniences you want or
need. Just 15 minutes on a rollerbladeable new paved road is a larger town with all of the necessary
things you may need. Palmar North and South, divided by another river, also has a brand new airport
with scheduled daily flights to San Jose, the capital of Costa Rica. Just another 10 - 15 minutes to a new
and very up-to-date hospital in Cortes.
Sierpe is an interesting town in many ways but one of the best parts is it's easy access to the Pacific
ocean, pristine beaches, Corcovado National Park, Caño Island and the best of the Osa Peninsula.
The Sierpe River is a deep water river navigable in any tide to the ocean. It is about a 30 minute run by
boat. The trip goes through the incredible Sierpe Terraba Mangrove Preserve and is always a pleasure to
travel. In Sierpe you have the beaches and ocean with out the 'beach town atmosphere'
Like to fish? Easily done! From Sierpe where there are many boats available it is just 30 minutes to the
ocean with very good salt water and deep sea fishing starting immediately when you enter the ocean.
You can fish the shore line, head out to Caño island (another 20 minutes) or head out further for Marlin,
huge tuna and sailfish.
From Sierpe you can drive 2 hours and be in the mountains and buy your raw coffee to roast directly from
the mills there. Want to go to Panama, only an hour and a half drive from Sierpe.
Sierpe has so very much to offer and is getting only better each year.
Costa Rica is a small country with a big heart. They have no army or military. Their main greeting phrase
is: Pura Vida which translates to Pure life. If you are looking to escape to a country that ALWAYS ranks at
the top of the list of countries with the happiest people, Costa Rica is the place. Clean air and water with
an abundance of natural beauty.
