About this coffee producer
Third-generation coffee grower, Roberto Montero, has dedicated 300 hectares to organic coffee production and most of the rest of his land is forested and teeming with wildlife. Roberto’s commitment to organic farming pairs harmoniously with his commitment to his community.
97% of the land that Roberto Montero’s grandfather first purchased in the early 1900s has been dedicated to forest preservation, with 6,000 of the original 10,000 hectares given back to the government of Costa Rica for the for the preservation of La Amistad International Park, the largest natural reserve in Central America.
Finca Amistad’s proximity to the border of Panama has attracted many indigenous people who come during harvest season with their entire families. Roberto ensures their needs are met by providing housing and free access to medical care for the seasonal pickers. Roberto also takes pride in his ability to provide more than 100 full-time jobs to his neighbors from Las Mellizas, not only in coffee cultivation, but also in the dried fruit operation that he runs year-round.
