Silky texture in a bright even cup. Sunshiny. Roberto Montero of La Amistad is a model organic farmer. Located in the Southwest corner of Costa Rica, his plot is located within a 40,000 plus acre tract of unspoiled rainforest. The Pacific breezes and cloud cover give the coffee a dense hard bean. His farm is completely off the grid, he grows his own fruits and veggies, uses hydro-electric for power, and manages the coffee farm as a way to keep the surrounding rainforest untouched. He is also fully self-sufficient in his drying and milling. So much so that he provides support for the nearby smaller farms by bringing their coffee to market and ensuring they get a good price.
We were the first roaster to buy this coffee, back in 1995. The farm is completely off the grid and truly beautiful!
