COSTA RICA La Amistad Fair Trade Organic – The coffee from Hacienda la Amistad shines not only in the cup, but in its commitment to the environment and community. It’s remarkable that 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 preservation of La Amistad International Park, the largest natural reserve in Central America. With the 4,000 hectares that have remained in this third-generation coffee farmer’s possession, Montero has dedicated 300 hectares to organic coffee production and most of the rest is forested and teeming with wildlife. Roberto’s commitment to organic farming pairs harmoniously with his commitment to his community. La Amistad’s proximity to the border of Panama has attracted many indigenous people from that country who come to the farm 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 at La Amistad. Roberto hosts an annual employee celebration to recognize all their hard work and he also distributes school supplies to their children each year before school starts.
ECUADOR Chiramoya – This coffee is a blend of various small family farms from the Pichincha and Imbabura provinces along with 150 hectares curated by Galo and Maria Alexandra. “Chirimoya” is the title of the small-farm blend, in honor of the native and uniquely delicious fruit widely grown and consumed across the Andes. This coffee is processed at home and dried on hand-made structures and greenhouses. This 350-hectare estate has been in Galo’s family for 80 years.

EL SALVADOR Santa Leticia – Finca Santa Leticia was passed down to Ricardo Valdivieso during a time of great turmoil in El Salvador’s history. At the peak of the conflict in the 1980s, Ricardo came face to face with a firing squad in defense of his family’s land. He was not shot but spent many years in exile before he was able to return to Finca Santa Leticia. Over the decades, his career as a coffee producer has been challenged in just about every way you could imagine. Today, Ricardo works with his daughter, Monica, to protect and nurture their groves of Pacamara and Bourbon arabica. During the harvest, a great deal of care and focus is dedicated to picking the best quality of cherry and gently drying it on clay patios.

ETHIOPIA Hambela Natural Organic – The bulk of production comes from small, family-owned farms where coffee is cultivated on just a few acres of land. Cherries are carefully hand sorted to remove underripe and damaged beans and then the moisture is carefully reduced to 11% on raised beds designed to gently dry coffee with lots of airflow. Simultaneously, Nura Korate carries out activities that often go unnoticed but are crucial for small producers, including training producers in best organic practices and investing in basic infrastructure needs like road improvements and establishing local warehouses. Sidama Coffee Farmers Cooperative Union (SCFCU) focuses on establishing a certification process for local cooperatives, creating micro-credit for producers and investing in social programs on a larger scale. Environmental training programs, healthcare initiatives, life insurance, and educational opportunities are just some of the ways SCFCU strives to improve the quality of life for coffee producers and their families.
