About La Caja China
It was the year 1985 during the Christmas season, when Roberto Guerra was cooking a pig on a makeshift barbecue, talking about all the trouble and long waiting time involved in this process. His father then talked about the long, wooden box he remembered from his childhood in Cuba. His father told him how the old contraption, called the Chinese Box, cut the roasting times virtually in half. Roberto asked his father to build their very own box. A few years later, the company, La Caja China, was born.
