A family business

Enrique Murillo has lived in Uvita for 21 years. He’s been married 13 very happy years with Sylvia Beita. Sylvia is 100% indian from the tribe Cabécar de Ujarrás. This is in the southern area of Costa Rica.

Enrique and Sylvia have handled cacao for 5 years as a family business. This was Sylvia’s idea.

Raw instinct
& a proven process

100% pure locally produced cacao.

Sylvia taught Enrique about cacao. As a Cabécar tribe member, she grew up working the land and knowing how to cultivate, harvest, cure, and grind… all without machines. Grown in land that has never seen even fertilizer. Their process is 100% natural artisan craft.

Sylvia and Enrique sell their exclusive garapiñado (cacao beans dusted with dulce) locally, but they are growing their business to cater to a more global client base that appreciates the fine quality of their garapiñado.

Committed teamwork
focus on product & service

We learned from Enrique and Sylvia’s commitment, teamwork, and passion for great product and service.

Blue Zone Realty International and LX Costa Rica support Enrique, Sylvia, and other local families by referring their business, just like we do with our own real estate efforts. Within Costa Rica we prefer local purchases whenever possible, support philanthropic and relief efforts in different parts of the country, and make sure we’re a positive and productive force – both locally and globally.

As part of the LeadingRE network: We’re local. We’re global.
