This coffee is sourced from a family-owned farm located in La Esperanza de Tarrazu within the province of San José, Costa Rica. The 12-acre farm, called La Esperanza Familia Monge, is owned and managed by the father and son team of Rodolfo and Gustavo Monge.
Rodolfo has more than 40 years of experience cultivating coffee but has only been processing the family’s coffee for the last four years in large part because of Gustavo’s interest in creating traceability for his family's coffee. The farm now has its own micro-mill where cherry selection, drying and storage are meticulously executed with a focus on balancing environmental impact with expressive cup profiles.
